Bicycle Heaven

Cool bikes, huh?

Just sittin' there, no locks, just waitin' for someone to hop on. Just like these.

Looks like something Google would do, doesn't it? Well, that's because it is.

Now, we over to the TOD can hear yer little mental gears a-strippin' : why can't we, in the next to newest City That Should [TM] do this? Here. Now.

Well for starters we have hills and Google is, well, in The Valley. And it can be hot in The Valley it's the kind of heat that comes without the 100% humidity. Then there is the fact that Googleplex is a relatively closed campus while the City That Should has a mishmosh of State, County and City asphalt. Other than that everything is identical.

What's that you say? "But, this is really really cool and EVERYBODY should do it!"


Well how 'bout this. Why don't you get your bad self on over to The Valley and get a job with Google setting yourself up in Bicycle Heaven? What? Not smart enough to score a job at Google? Ain't that a shame? 'Cuz if you were you might score one of these bad boys...

Screw the bikes.
