see and be seen on your vélo

Did anyone know that for the past several weeks we had a free city bike share program at our fingertips? This morning I visited Vapor, the current art exhibition about air quality at Southern Exposure on 14th and Valencia. Since the show began, there have been a fleet of bicycles for rent (for free), just like Vélib in Paris and Bicing in Barcelona. Here are a couple shots of their lovely white hybrids:

And their public pump:

I am telling this to you NOW because you have two and a half days left to tell your friends sans bicyclette that they can experience how it feels to be as cool and hip as you are by renting one and riding it up and down Valencia Street looking fabulous!

Also, on Saturday, Southern Exposure will be holding a Public Charette to discuss why San Francisco should have one of its own bicycle sharing programs. Join the fun from 1 - 5 pm!

Here's another great event to partake in:

Heels on Wheels

Fri., May. 2 | 6pm, Civic Center Plaza, Polk @ Grove

We will NOT sacrifice fashion for the road. We are cyclists, and we are fabulous -- two kinds of fierce. In your designer suit and silk tie, in your thrifted skirt and vintage stiletto, in your Friday night, pre-club, pre-party, pre-date, pre-drag show finest. Let's put our dancin' shoes on and ride!
