He began at 5:30 this morning and rode the SF2G Skyline Route. Peter reports the seven speeds in the internally geared hub provide sufficient range to allow him to climb the 2000+ feet of elevation gain with ease and suggests a Tunitas ride on a BABS bike might be in store soon.
“There were a few puzzled/incredulous/awestruck (in that order) looks from other riders,” reports one of the riders who accompanied / heckled Colijn on this ride.
Perhaps the most important discovery: “And you can’t dock them in another city. We tried docking it at MTV Caltrain and it just wouldn’t go in.”
Anyone who would like to replicate this feat should remember overtime fees are significant. Four hours with a BABS bike will run you $52 in fees.
