Leah Shahum had a jarring realization in 2013. In the wake of a particularly fatal year for bicyclists and pedestrians in San Francisco, it became clear to her that the slow, piecemeal approach to create safer streets wasn't moving nearly fast enough. It was time to redraw the lines of the debate, shift the cultural compass for the city, the public and advocates to no longer accept traffic deaths as tragedies out of their control. So, at the star...

The proposed California-wide bicycle helmet law has stirred up a passionate debate on blogs and bike club lists as well as in the media. Unfortunately, many discussions have degraded quickly into name-calling and personal insults–like the oh-so-droll “hard-headed bicyclists” headline several ...

A family living by bike in Buffalo.
They prove it can be done, while remaining comfortable.
Pretty cool!

Great shop that helped get my wife on a new Trek mountain bike and pro bono fixed a dozen bikes to be donated to kids in San Rafael. They matched the lowest retailer price on her bike, which was great. Sweet shop hidden across from the Bay Trail.

I stopped at this Cafe during a bike tour. It was the best stop we made the whole trip. My partner is vegetarian and I prefer health food. Rose is super nice and even filled our water bottles with ice water before we got back on the bikes. She packed us food for diner and the prices were very reasonable.

One of the best bike stores I've had the pleasure of visiting. Whether I'm buying a bike or asking for free bike boxes, they treat the customers right. Not surprised that it's a Trek store!

The family at Life Cycle have been the dependable mechanics in town for 30+ years. If you go to any other shop you'll see new staff rotating through all the time. I've heard crazy talk from all their competition in town (we don't have that tube size, maybe its European!), but at LC you get the same 3 people ALL OF THE TIME. A strong core of local riders go to Life Cycle for the knowledgeable service, but the bikes/accessories are often priced below retail. Bottom line: commuters, cross-country MTBer's, roadies, and recreational riders who want a relationship and not just a cheap bike should go to Life Cycle, or risk the inexperience of the new guy they just hired elsewhere.
