"Welcome to My Shed": Bike Love in Scotland
The centre of Glasgow, Scotland, looks a little bit like New York and San Francisco upped sticks, ran 1,400 miles inland, and settled down together somewhere in Nebraska. Grand old high-rise buildings line wide, hilly streets. Glasgow’s suburbs lose some of that old character. Once you pass under the ring road that carries traffic into and out of the city, great stone buildings give way to 1970s apartment blocks and industrial parks. And it’s on one of these industrial parks a 5-minute drive out of the city centre that Carl Lottering-Geeson has set up shop.
“If I didn’t do this I don’t know what I’d do,” he explains to me over a cup of coffee in his store, Bike Love. Lottering-Geeson builds and fixes bicycles.
