This post is sponsored by Public Bikes. I begged to work with them after I tried their awesome bikes.
I’ve wanted bikes since we first moved to San Francisco over 8 years ago. Our first apartment we lived right in front of a Metro stop and it was easy to get around town. We thought about getting bikes but we didn’t have a garage so it didn’t make sense. Then we moved on Nob Hill where we had a storage room but we lived at the top of San Francisco’s famous steep hills so bikes got nixed again. In Paris we used Velib, the public biking system almost every day. So when we moved back to San Francisco we specifically looked for apartments in flat areas so we could get bikes. We test drove bikes last week and placed an order for two bikes and kids seats. I am so excited to get them, I can’t wait to bike all over the city (the flat-ish areas at least) with the kids.
We chose Public Bikes because we wanted classic European style bikes that were good for getting around the city. (I approached them after I test drove and fell in love with their bikes at their new Valencia street shop around the corner from our new apartment.) They come in really clean modern colors and just put out a new line of spring colors. Have you ever tried a Public Bike? ps: Remember Rebecca and Derek’s Bike Wedding?
