San Francisco Bay Area Bike Commuters

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf says "I'm biking to work today in the clothes I plan to wear all day long.  I'm meeting dignitaries; I'm giving speeches. I want to show you don't have to own spandex to bike to work."

Also, I learned the blue house on West Cliff is "The Dirty Harry" house. Sorry, from Sudden Impact, not Dirty Harry.

Bike Marketing to Women

I'm looking at bike marketing outside of the USA and ran across this montage from Hero Cycles in India.

Is the male gaze in this video off-putting to potential female consumers? Does it ruin an otherwise okay attempt at reaching out to both men and women?

That's (pardon the expression) the clincher. It's no different. It may even be better! Caroline Buchanan (edit spelling, go figure!) is awesome... but hadn't heard of her till this year when she attended a local BMX track.

Silicon Valley Bike Advocacy

San Jose Bike Party has brought more diversity and regular, active participation by people who don't consider themselves "cyclists" than any other program I can think of around here.

San Jose's DOT director and a big chunk of his staff are regular participants, as are people from the City Manager's office, city council members and their staff, and even our current mayor. I believe San Jose Bike Party has almost single-handedly transformed local bike politics.

A few interesting bits in the video:

 * The videoographer really likes Stormtrooper gal
 * My buddy Mark with his DJ mix bike at 1:50
 * The real advocacy work begins at 5:55
 * Coolest stormtrooper outfit ever at 8:44
 * Star Wars Kid reboot at 9:40

+Ian Emmons  Air Quotes seems like a likely name for an Air Supply tribute band, if such a thing existed.

Accidental Selfie

The bike cam captures my reflection on the back of this Chevy Silverado earlier today. Front Street at Cathcart,  Santa Cruz, CA.

Someone forgot to tell the Silverado owner that there's a drought on.

+Ian Emmons Anything with "Shanghai" in the name in Cupertino or Sunnyvale will likely have similar. Shanghai Dumpling on Bollinger at Blaney is cheap and okay. They make the same style of xialongbao soup dumplings as Din Tai Fung.  Like most South Bay dim sum places, service is efficient but can appear rude.

It's a different style of dumplings, but Tong Dumpling in Cupertino Village (behind 99 Ranch on Wolfe Road directly across from the new Apple campus) makes delicious potstickers. Keep with the basics and don't get the other menu items and you'll do fine. Very little parking so ride your bike there.

Bragging rights
When I was 14 I wrote a single pass 6502 assembler in Atari BASIC (yes, really). In college, while my peers had modern 286 PCs for their assignments, I had a hand-me-down Heathkit 8086; I rewrote the BIOS so it would be PC compatible enough to run MS-DOS 3.0, Wordstar, Lotus 123, and Borland's Turbo C IDE. Everything since then is a corporate trade secret.

The menu is your basic American Chinese food and the quality can be uneven but Mary is super friendly and all meals are cooked to order. A favorite in 95066.
