Pedal Power: Wacky to Workhorse

June 21, 2014 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Do you want to see how your bicycle compares to those of yesteryear?

Join fellow local bicycle enthusiasts on Saturday, June 21, for a ride to the Los Altos History Museum to check out the Pedal Power exhibit.
Since their introduction, bicycles have been used for work and for whimsy. Experience a unique collection of wacky, wonderful, and workhorse bicycles from around the Bay Area – where mountain biking was born and road-racing legends were formed. From nostalgic high-wheelers and classic Sting-Rays to early mountain and road-racing bikes, and bikes used by soldiers and police officers, you’re sure to find many that pique your interest and inspire you to take a ride!


We’ll depart from the south/west side of the San Antonio Caltrain Station at 1:30 pm for a leisurely 4 mile ride through the neighborhoods of Los Altos. If you’d rather meet us at the Museum, we should be arriving there around 2:00. The museum is open until 4 pm, so you’ll have a couple of hours to peruse the exhibit, which is free of charge.

At 3:45 pm the cycling group will bike to downtown Mountain View (in case anyone needs to catch the 4:19 northbound or 4:29 southbound train). Those with the time and inclination to do so are invited to enjoy a burger and discounted beer at Bierhaus on Castro St. (2.5 miles from the museum). It’s another easy half mile to the Mountain View Caltrain Station from there, once it’s time for you to head home.

Please, register here:

Hope to see you there!
