I’ve been on the hunt for a bicycle for a couple years now – there are tons of styles and brands out there to choose from. When looking I only had one major important criteria . . . it had to be white. I know, I know – I’m a little crazy, but if a girl knows what she wants. Why compromise?
When I reached out to Brooklyn Cruiser last fall they were excited to share the news that they were bringing their beautiful Dutch bikes to California. Let’s just say I was thrilled by this announcement. In late April, when my stunning all-white bicycle arrived at Market Street Cycles here in San Francisco, I couldn’t wait to take it for a spin. The first journey was actually to Carmel for this shoot, but when I returned I set out on daily adventures around the city – to the market, a meeting on Fillmore, and then a ride down the hill to the Palace of Fine Arts (one of my favorite spots in the city).
Luckily for us Bay Area residents there are three local stockists:
Market Street Cycles in San Francisco
Willow Glen Cycles in San Jose
Lulu’s Cyclery (opening soon) in Berkeley
Today Brooklyn Cruiser is giving away one of their Dutch bikes to a lucky Bay Area reader!
