Silicon Valley Bakfiets

I saw two Dutch-style bakfiets (or “box bikes”) in the span of 12 hours. The first was Ginger and her two children last night in San Jose, California

And then this morning I ran into Andrew crossing from Palo Alto into Menlo Park.

It’s a cool coincidence; I’m waiting to run into three to call this a trend.

Both of these bikes were purchased from My Dutch Bike in San Francisco. These bakfiets are made by WorkCycles in Amsterdam.

I’ve also added these photos to James Schwartz’s Rate My Velo website. You see a pair of photos of people on bikes and vote for the photo you like.
