Light Rider at Antonplatz, Weißensee

GRLG joined in to support the protest against the local “Thor Steinar” store in Weißensee, selling ugly nazi wear. We set up blitzag to write on a decent wall close to the store.  A lot of people were tagging, some of them very talented writers. Thanks to all who joined in. Additional infos regarding the brand “Thor Steinar” on wikipedia. German language infos are available here.

Let’s hope the “Thor Steinar” store (and all the others) will be history soon. More infos in german language on the website of the group “Weißensee gegen rechts”.

From this week on, the Light Rider is part of the platform Postfossilmobil – Velogistic

Ab dieser Woche ist unser Light Rider Teil der neuen Plattform Postfossilmobil – Velogistic. The goal of the project is to show cargo bikes and bike trailers in your neighboorhood that are available for rent.

One goal of the Light Rider from day one was to make it available for the community. For Events and actions with or without the technical modules that are available (for more infos see the Light Rider page). We are happy that we can support the Velogistic team an hope that we are now one step closer to our goal, that other people can use the Light Rider for their ideas and purposes.
