60 Days Of Bikerowave 3.0

By Alex Thompson

Bikerowave moved into it’s new location on August 1st.  We left Santa Monica, and a back alley semi-industrial area, and moved into prime real estate on Venice Blvd in Mar Vista.  In the process I took 2800 photos, documenting the first 60 days at our new location.  You can check out the keepers in the “Bikerowave 3.0, the first 60 days” Flickr gallery.  Here’s a few:
