Only A Hobo

Carlton has a great history. Its proximity to everything luscious here in the North Country is well known. Less known is its local hobo communities that resided here during America's "hard times" era preceding World War II. As we invest time and money in resuscitating our community and its rich heritage we don't want to forget those hard times that descended on so many in our region.

Bob Dylan has recorded many songs that show his understanding and empathy for down and out people on the fringe. Here at Carlton Bike Rental we like to think of ourselves as Hobo Junction, an intersection of past hardship and future dreams for life's weary but hopeful travelers.

Wherever you're at in life's journey, visit us and have your spirits lifted by the art, the companionship and something to quench your thirst as you travel your dusty road or wait for the next train.

What is it about a lament like "Only A Hobo" by Dylan that so moves us? I suspect it's because in a world such as ours we've all known a measure of sorrow and felt a sense of isolation, aloneness. Well, if you need an escape, drop in for a visit and sip some coffee with us. Wherever you come from you're welcome here. And for a real escape from whatever ails you, take a trip on the Munger Trail... Let the beauty there fill your lungs, your heart and your soul. You will remember again why life is so worth living.
