Experience a unique collection of wacky, wonderful, and workhorse bicycles from around the Bay Area - where mountain biking was born and road-racing legends were formed. From nostalgic high-wheelers and classic Sting-Rays to early mountain and road-racing bikes, and bikes used by soldiers and police officers, you're sure to find many that pique your interest and inspire you to take a ride! A collaboration with GreenTown Los Altos.
