Bike to Work Day 2015
Today was the official Bike to Work Day here in our hometown of San Francisco, and the Faraday crew marked the occasion by heading to Market Street to greet riders with our friends at Huckleberry Bicycles.
After months of nothing but clear skies, the forecast called for rain. But it turned out to be a perfect morning for riding, with just a few clouds and no wind to speak of. We saw hundreds (maybe thousands?) of folks ride through in a virtual bike parade down Market Street through the heart of San Francisco, and it was a fantastic site to behold.
From high-end road bikes to dusted-off old mountain bikes, new city bikes, several long-tails, and even a few Faraday Porteurs, we saw just about kind of bike and rider imaginable. A great reminder that it doesn’t really matter what you ride, it’s all about getting out and riding. (though obviously we have a certain bias toward a particular electric bike. Especially for daily commuting!)
Here are a couple more shots from the festivities this morning. Thanks to Huckleberry Bicycles for having us out in front of their shop with them to hand out flowers and smiles to all the bikers-by.
