Bike Date Profile: Jennie & Jonathan at Bierhaus

19 Oct

Lance Armstrong was wrong when he said “It’s not about the bike.” Jennie has the loop-frame love for her city bike and has been riding it all over town and to work for years. Her husband? Not so much, much to Jennie’s chagrin. The problem became clear the day they switched bikes. Jonathan’s bike was an uncomfortable beast: too bent-forward, with complicated shifting and a narrow saddle. And he had no interest in padded shorts.

Jonathan’s back was happier with the upright stance of Jennie’s bike and his butt liked the wider saddle. So when PUBLIC bikes had a Bastille Day sale, he jumped at the chance and rode off with a royal blue mixte.

Now, much to Jennie’s delight, he’s eager to go out for a ride down the creek trail or off for a bite downtown. One of their go-to spots is Bierhaus on Castro Street. They’ve lived in the area long enough to know the building’s humble beginnings as a teen-hangout Weinerschnitzel, then as a Mediterranean place, and now a craft beer and burger spot with an expansive outdoor patio. With great beer for him and glueten-free dining options for her, it’s an easy way to relax after a long day with a short ride over and a casual meal.

The venue: Bierhaus at 383 Castro Street, Mountain View, California, USA

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.
