Globe-Trotters

Q: What could be more beautiful than a rainbow of bikes in pretty colors?

A: A group of beautiful peeps riding those beauties!

I was honored to be invited by Globe Bikes to take part in an exclusive urban bike tour offered by the brand spankin' new company SoSF!

They led us to some prime SF spots! A KT fave:

I was riding the Globe Haul, though I didn't haul any heavy loads until later that evening (stay tuned).

We all paused to contemplate the mural laden Balmy Alley in the Mission:

I got to meet some cool bike peeps from other cities, like Matt from Bicycle Times.

And the fresh new bike racks on Valencia Street were even a surprise to us locals. Jessica Meek from Globe admires!

We were all treated to a tasty catered picnic at Dolores Park... this head tube tells all!
Mmmmm Good!

A fun event to launch Globe's new line of 2010 bikes! I've had a Globe Daily (new for 2010) to test ride this week, and so instead of writing about it, a film is worth a thousand words. Riding to the music of Alex Cuba, "Directo."

I had to return a Globe that we'd borrowed for our Collective Commute. The route took me through a riverside park and ended far too soon. Love that upright riding style!
