  High-wheels and recumbents
By Alison Chaiken 
Martin Krieg climbing Hanover St. in Palo Alto, CA

A little bit back I rode with Faye Saunders and Martin Krieg on a leisurely pace around Palo Alto. I borrowed Faye's Bike-E, she piloted her EZ-Racer, and Martin impressively demonstrated hill-climbing on an Eagle (shown above). The excursion was my first on a recumbent, so I was a bit nervous, but compared to riding the Eagle, it seemed a bit wussy. Believe it or not, starting on May 3, Martin is going to ride his Eagle across the U.S.

  not your usual bicycle tour
By Alison Chaiken 
When we say "bicycle tour," you probably imagine slogging up mountain passes with bulging panniers, but these bicycle tours are more traditional tourism-tours where participants happen to travel by bicycle.

Sustainability Tours from Santa Cruz:
Bicycle the beautiful coast and mountains of Santa Cruz, California. Visit organic farms, sustainable vineyards, and ecological homes. Taste varieties of wines, herb teas, juices, tomatoes, honeycomb, and more.


Bicycle History Tours in San Francisco:
CounterPULSE and Shaping San Francisco director Chris Carlsson conducts ~4-hour historical tours of San Francisco by bicycle. Bring a snack and water, and reserve your spot now! Meet at CounterPULSE, at noon on the dates above.


And for completeness, eleven Bicycle Architecture Tours in London last summer (tip of the hat to The Bike Show from Resonance FM).
