JAKE STANGEL DOCUMENTS A DAY OF DOING ERRANDS CAR-FREE FOR INNOVATIVE BIKE BRAND SPECIALIZED GLOBE

What’s it like to spend a day biking around town with Holly Samuelsen, owner of the San Francisco boutique Gravel & Gold? Jake Stangel, who followed and photographed her for electric-cargo-bike maker Specialized Globe, got the scoop in photographic form.

“We did errands for her shop, we hauled shit, we bought flowers, we played tennis, we drank ice-cold wine, we climbed a thousand hills, and we never broke a sweat,” says Jake, who is himself an avid cyclist. “Bikes in cities are the future,” he says. “Ditch your car, spend less time in traffic and parking, be more gentle to the earth, and have more fun getting around town.”
