Ape Hanger Aero

Ape hanger bars folded forward for a more aero profile on this bike made from palm tree bark and a rear triangle of unknown heritage in downtown San Jose, California.
I see this camo guy on the ultra short bike from time to time in downtown San Jose. I think his front triangle is made from tree limbs.

+JP Lang yep they sell the info as their "Strava Metro" project, which is what that video is all about. Start and destination is anonimized but it does a good job of showing trip data and bike traffic volumes in absolute numbers (vs the relative volumes shown in the heat map).

Other tracking tools are available designed specifically for planning, but very few people who ride bikes use them or are even aware of them.

A Rainy Earth Day 2016 in San Jose, California

Happy Friday!

Karen on the yellow Miyata is a transportation planner for the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority. She's been a bike nut since her youth, and bikes to work every working day of the year, rain or shine.

Dencil on the black Specialized is an operating systems kernel engineer for Oracle. She either bikes or walks to the office every day.

Brooks and Seven

This had been a gravel trail until a few years ago. This rider used to commute here on a Trek 2200, but saved up for a hardtail mountain bike to more easily ride this unpaved trail segment. By the time he had the cash, the city paved this path, so he used the money to buy this shiny Seven instead.

Seen during last night's commute in San Jose CA.

10 years of SF2G

Happy Earth  Week, all.

SF2G is the daily 40 mile group bike commute from San Francisco to Google in Mountain View. Other people join in  for destinations along the San Francisco Peninsula and further south in Silicon Valley.

 This week marks 10 years of SF2G. Several people who participated in that initial "Bayway" ride will join the anniversary ride on Thursday morning.
10 years ago yesterday, Brett Lider of Google announced the first Bayway ride to an internal bike discussion list at Google that would eventually morph into the public SF2G ride announcement list. ...

Throwback Thursday: Barrier Bunnyhop

This appeared in my "three years ago today" stream at Facebook, when I was a little more willing to sacrifice family time for race photography. This was shot during the Pro/1/2 Cyclocross race at the Sea Otter Classic in 2013.

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.
