Amy came to Suburbanbikes and decided to try out a Brooklyn bike around town and The Willow was her bike of choice. We had a camera follow her around.
The Willow is a cute around town cruiser with gears and all the accessories you could need for fashionable urban or suburban 2 wheel getting around.
Brooklyn says: "Behold Willow—our can-do conversation-starter. With a step-through frame that accommodates everything from your finely tailored suit to your sun-faded maxi, our Willow seven-speed will get you anywhere you need to go—attitude in tow. Internal gearing means fewer stops at the bike shop, more stops at the coffee shop, and these cream tires will not only delight the senses, but dominate the pavement. Top it all off with crown fork detailing, a color-matched chain cover and fenders, and dark walnut accents—plus a cargo-ready rack—and you’ve got yourself one photogenic and functional ride."
We agree and Amy was very photogenic on our ride around the latin quarter of Redwood City. Middlefield Road is a kind of suburban Mission District for Redwood City and the area is filled with vibrant colors and latin stores and restaurants.
It's also home to a great local grocery outlet where some wonderful fresh fruits are to be had.
Amy is originally from Boston. She came to California originally to be a nanny only to find her career swallowed whole by Silicon Valley and the DotCom arena. She now works for two start-ups and lives with room mates in the hills above Redwood City.
Amy probably didn't know that Redwood City is famous for its Taquerias. If you don't already love tacos and you come to Redwood City, you soon will. And what's not to like about Tacos?
Redwood City is not very well known as a fashion center, however. Most of the downtown of Redwood City is filled with wonderful eateries. Along Middlefield however, there are a number of choice stores to shop at, particularly if you're a fan of Converse shoes...
We had a wonderful afternoon riding around Redwood City and Middlefield Rd. Amy loved riding her Brooklyn Willow. In Boston, the window to ride a bike in good weather is quite small compared to Redwood City.
