Jim Schutze at the Observer got on a bike and rode around Oak Cliff with Mariana Griggs of Oak Cliff Community Gardens, and he concluded that we’re cool, even proclaiming that the old part of Oak Cliff is "the new Austin."

It is a very flattering story about 25-40-somethings in Oak Cliff, whom he dubs "bikos." But seriously. Let’s keep this to ourselves.
