Dick’s Bike Taxi Service

22 Aug

Last week, Dick and I were invited to a concert in San Francisco. Because of its location and 7 pm start time, it made sense that Dick should pick me up at the office and we would drive from there. The problem: If I rode to work in the morning I’d have to leave my bike either in or on top of the car, risking theft. If I drove, we’d have to stop back at my work on the way home. The solution: Dick’s Bike Taxi Service.

With our tandem, Dick will drop me off or pick me up anywhere up to 5-10 miles from home, free of charge (gratuities accepted). So far I’ve used the service three times: when buying my Dutch bike, when dropping it off for overnight repairs, and for last Friday’s after work concert. That’s more times than we’ve ridden the tandem for recreation this year. Not exactly what I expected when we bought it, but very very useful.

Do you have a bike that you bought for one purpose, but now value for something completely different?
