Biketoberfest on a BIKERGO–here I come!

October 10, 2009

yellow BIKERGO october 2009Yesterday I had so much fun riding around Marin County on this fabulous yellow Bikergo with inventer Steven Ascher that he invited me to ride with him to Biketoberfest over in Fairfax, the original home of mountain bike!! Of course I said yes!Biketoberfest_09_poster_02(2)sm

Biketoberfest looks like lots of fun, plus it’s a fundraiser to support cycling in Marin County. Several rides went out at 10am this morning, there’s like 20 breweries offering tastings, food, music, vintage bikes and I am sure plenty of schwag to bring home!

PS There are so many awesome features on this bike–no wonder I fell in love with it at Burning Man! (Read that story here.)

But you’ve got to check out the basket on the bike–it’s got this great little attachment that lets the basket just snap on and off so you can take it with you to the Farmers Market or the store or in the house! Plus you can cinch it closed while you’re riding to keep stuff from blowing out. And it’s big enough so you can leave your helmet and your jacket in it while you’re sitting and drinking coffee watching people pass by as they admire your Bikergo and squeeze the seat!

    What great features with the basket. That really makes it easy to reduce bag use. My late friend (an environmental activist) used to worry that we were all doomed sometimes, but I always reassured her that humans are too wired for self-preservation for that. Every time I bump into news like this I think of my reassurances to her. I have faith that we’ll stumble our way clear eventually.

    I just checked out the Bikergo site. Love the “ergo”. . .
    No more “horn between the legs” sounds like a dream ride!

    Way to go Gwen and Bikergo folks!
    This looks like a great bike for the urban art rides.
