I first interviewed entrepreneur Chris Kelly for the Topanga Messenger in May, 2012. Ten years later, we sat down in his shop to talk about his philosophies on life and building a mountain biking community steeped in creativity. My story with photographs appeared in the April 29, 2022 Spotlight section of The Canyon Chronicle. ~ KgZ

“None of us are perfect, but all over the place in every community and field of endeavor, there are people who are working generatively with the challenges before us; meeting them, rising to their best human capacities — at least on their good days — and creating new possibilities and realities. They’re not publicized, they’re not investigated, but that landscape is as real and important as that landscape of everything we can point out as failing and corrupt and catastrophic. “
