Yes, it’s happening even in Los Angeles, a car-head dystopia I reserve the right to disdain since I grew up at the confluence of the 57 and 60 freeways. Check out Bakfietsen to the Future!, about an expectant father whose acquisition of a bakfiets instead of a second car just as oil is passing the $100/barrel mark is “a way to live my life on my own terms” and avoid reverting to the “chubby, hateful, angry” driver he once was. Your daughter will love it, Josef.
Josef got his bak from our friends at Rain City Bikes north of the border (it’s all good, but… but did we screw up somehow?). Our own north-south aid package, the San Francisco Bakfiets shuttle is finally coming together with free delivery scheduled 19-20 January. The truck is pretty full already with bikes ready to ride, but we can disassemble a bit and pack in a few more if you act fast. We are packing only pre-sold bikes, but perhaps if you show up at the to-be-determined pickup locations you can kick the tires gently to decide if you want one.
