Fill up your water bottle, strap on that helmet, and roll up your right pant leg. May is National Bike Month. More than 100,000 Bay Area riders are expected to participate in Bike to Work Day on May 12, including Timbuk2 CEO Mike Wallenfels, who bikes 38 miles roundtrip on his regular commute. “I ride along the bay through Marin County, where I have views of Mt. Tamalpais and the shore of Sausalito. You can’t beat crossing the Golden Gate Bridge at sunrise,” he says. Energizer stations set up around the city make the Bike to Work Day commute even easier with free beverages and snacks. After work, pedal to DNA Lounge for a party and fashion show complete with raffles, DJs, and valet bicycle parking.
If Mother's Day crept up on you like it did us, you're not totally out of luck. Rather, take advantage of the research we've done for you (or um, ourselves) and treat the woman you love to the creme de la creme in Mother's Day gifts. But hurry up while the offers still stand!
It was a heart-sinking sight after a wildfire erupted on the Bay Area's Angel Island State Park on Sunday, October 12, lighting it up in bright orange streams. The park reopened to visitors on Monday, and though areas that were burned and most hiking trails are currently off-limits, this is a great time to visit, with fewer crowds, nice fall weather, and almost half the island untouched by the fire.
