Silicon Valley Bike Style

11 May

Copenhagen has Cycle Chic, New York has #BikeNYC and San Francisco has Bike Pretty, but did you know that Silicon Valley has Bike Style? Yes, indeed, in the last couple of years, I’ve been spying more and more stylish people riding beautiful bikes all over the Valley. The word is out that you don’t have to get kitted out in lycra or other performance bike wear every time you hop on a bike.

I had never seen as many stylish people on bikes strutting their stuff as I did at the Bike Away From Work Bash hosted by the SVBC at San José City Hall last Thursday night. I grabbed people out of the bike valet line and quickly snapped almost 50 bike portraits. The full set of portraits shows an amazingly diverse community of riders. Whether in lycra or jeans or work clothes, everyone looks great when they’re on their bike.

What’s your bike style? Urban edgy? Frills and lace? Preppy classic? Euro sophisticated? Slouchy chic? Whatever it is, you can show it off by uploading your photo on the newly launched Silicon Valley Bike Style.

Fix The Toaster

Nearly 32,000 Americans die in car crashes annually. 80% of car crashes are PREVENTABLE. If the TOASTER was killing that many people we'd think it was ridiculous. We'd un-plug it and say, let's Fix The Toaster.
