Where’s Richard? Get Free Stuff

Remember, tomorrow (Thursday, May 13 2010) is Bike To Work Day in the San Francisco Bay Area. If you see me, flag me down and I might have some goodies for you.

I’ll be on the wonderfully cute Kona Bandwagon fixed gear bike (light blue frame with obnoxious orange rims). I’ll likely have a big red backpack for the schwag.

One lucky winner will get a copy of Bike Snob NYC’s book (the hardcover released copy). Everybody else will get other random stuff. You must be willing to be photographed to get the prizes and have your photo posted to Flickr and this blog.

Feel free to ride with me — I’ll be on the fixed gear taking photos so I will be traveling a little slower than usual. If you want me to look for you, leave a comment on this post before 9 PM Pacific Time Wednesday and I’ll email you my cellphone number.

I’ll Caltrain from San Jose Diridon to Mountain View Castro Street, then bike to Menlo Park with brief stops at these “Energizer Stations“: Mountain View Caltrain, Castro & California, Wilkie Way bike bridge, California Avenue Caltrain, Palo Alto Caltrain, Palo Alto City Hall, Willow Place bike bridge, and the Dumbarton Bridge bike path at University Avenue. I would like to start at 7 AM in San Jose; let’s see if I actually get up early enough for that. Follow me on Twitter for updates.

I like the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition’s Bike To Work Day “reasons to bike”: “There are so many great reasons to give bike commuting a first try, but the reason people stick with it is simple – fun. So save the date for a morning of fun: Thursday, May 13 is Bike to Work Day 2010. Leave the car at home, dust off the bike, and enjoy your commute for once.

Speaking of fun: I’m still trying to work things out, but I might be at the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition bike fashion show Thursday night. There’s also a “Bike Away From Work Bash” on the Peninsula a tthe Depot Cafe in San Carlos.


  1. I may run into you in the opposite direction. Planing to parallel the caltrain tracks as much as possible south from San Bruno.

  2. I hope a lot of people ride past you, but not so many that you have to start parting out your ride!

  3. So I'd like to meet you at the Mountain View station! I'll gladly train it all the way down there and ride up with you instead of getting off at Menlo! Txt me what time you arrive at Mountain View?

  4. =v= You gonna wear a long turtleneck sweater with red and white horizontal stripes, and a matching cap?
