Silicon Valley bikey events this weekend

The Los Altos (CA) History Museum began exhibiting “Pedal Power: From Wacky to Workhorse” last April. As part of this summer-long bike theme, the museum has two special events over the weekend.

Saturday’s event is an electric bike festival from 10 AM to 1 PM at the museum, where you can see a bamboo electric bike from Calfee Designs, a “classic” styled e-bike from Vintage Electric Bikes in Los GatosSanta Clara, and several models from Faraday in San Francisco.

On Sunday, July 27, History San Jose will open their “Silicon Valley Bikes: Passion, Innovation & Politics Since 1880” exhibit from noon to 4:30 PM. I was asked some time ago to provide some photos for this exhibit; let’s see if any of them made it in.

Speaking of history, I’m currently perusing this new book, Googles and Dust, a coffee table book featuring photos of European road cycling from the first four decades of the 20th Century.
