| I was cycling down Santa Clara Street in downtown San Jose last week when I looked south down 1st Street and I spotted a distinctive white Dutch style bike with a skirt guard the next block down on San Fernando. Since I’m crazy about bikes — especially slightly unusual bikes — I raced down 2nd Street to meet this stylish cyclist. I caught up to Dolin on San Fernando in front of San Jose State University. She’s obviously a stylin’ gal, and then I learn that Dolin is a fashion designer in San Francisco.
The bike is the Electra Amsterdam, which is equipped with chainguard, skirt guard, fenders and rack. Dolin also rides a vintage Raleigh around San Jose with her fiancé.
About that last photo — I realize she’s in the door zone, but she was trying to be helpful to me by scooting right momentarily so I could take her cycling photo.
