On July 25, over fifty supporters of theDerailer Bike Collective
packed into the Board of Adjustment hearing room, where Derailer members Mackenzie Liman, Sarah Graves and Sarah Bardwell explained why Derailer should be granted a six-month delay of enforcement of the April 5 cease-and-desist order. In that order, the city's zoning department had cited the group for operating a "non-profit bicycle shop" and a "non-profit boarding house" at 1065 Lipan Street. The board agreed to grant the collective an extension until January 1, 2007, which should give its members time to gain non-profit status, raise funds and find another location, preferably in their beloved La Alma/Lincoln Park neighborhood. --
