Do you like biking around your city? It’s my favorite way to get anywhere (as long as weather permits). We join my friend Sandra in San Francisco today as she runs errands with uber Bike for her son’s birthday party …
I was so excited to learn about Uber Bike’s brand new operation. You need to talk about it here:
It’s only being sold in San Francisco right now, but in the expectation that they will eventually spread to other areas.
These are driven by JUMP bikes and are parked on regular bike racks around the area, which you rent through the same Uber app. You can see near you the positions of the bikes, then choose one to book on the web. Once you’re on the bike, enter a code given to unlock the bike through the app.
The bike has a motor that makes it easy for you to charge up the San Francisco hills. The cost is $2 for 30 minutes, and you can lock it back up to any bike rack when you arrive at your destination.
My friend Sandra lives in San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood and we’re watching here today as she bikes around to make orders for the birthday party of her son.
Next, we stopped to pick up a cake in Noe Valley Bakery.
“Their mini cupcakes and m&m cookies are addicted to my family. It’s so sweet to see him “pay” for a treat he finds on the road with some quarter the workers there are always so nice and play along. My son and I drop off my daughter at her ballet class on Saturday mornings and walk down to the bakery. It’s a mummy-son fun little routine that’s hard to give up!
Then we stop by The Flower Shop.
“I know that my Amsterdam habits are pretty engrained here because of my half-Dutch roots, of course, I love florists. Which girl is not in love with a bunch of fresh flowers? You will find me here (or a few doors down at the Chocolaterie) any time I have a good friend to cheer up.”
Now, we’re getting a gift from Sandra’s favorite (and mine too!) toy shops, Mapamundi Kids.
“For our kin, Mapamundi has been a super pull since we moved to Noe. The most beautiful collection of toys, books, gifts, and clothing has been curated by Estaban (with a little support from his wife Lorena who created Petit Collage). It was a lifesaver for us on virtually every birthday party outing..”
Thank you, Sandra, for encouraging us to take part in our birthday party errands!
Excited about this latest errand and even commuting service from Uber Bike in San Francisco. It was so easy to use and it was so fun! Are you going to try it?
