Hi, my name is Tim. Tim from Timbuk2.
I’ve owned and worked at bike shops, raced bicycles, and was a bicycle mechanic at the Tour de France, Olympic Games and have spent most of my life on or around bicycles. As a 26 year veteran of daily San Francisco commuting and cycling without a single vehicular mishap (knocking on wood), I feel compelled to share what I know about safe cycling in a major metropolitan city. Urban cycling can be challenging and hazardous, but with some helpful advice, it can be a healthy, environmentally friendly, and rewarding experience.
