BART (My Bicycle Train)

Recommended Posts

I ride south often from San Francisco to various destinations in the Peninsula going as far as Palo Alto then riding back with rides ranging from 20-50 miles depending how far south I ride.  Lately, I've been taking BART back to SF from the SFO BART Station saving me about 10 miles of riding and having to deal with the usual headwinds in the afternoon.  The new BART trains have cars with some nice bike racks.  We've been having the whole train car to ourselves as the airport is pretty empty.

The classic BART train from 1972 - I like the wedge front design more than the new design.

I grew up in Oakland when bart debuted and that sloped front edge was totally space aged on the prestressed concrete elevated Y piers. Just too cool!

Wow, those new bart trains look pretty nice!  I love the classic styling of the older trains, but they were pretty worn out inside.  The bike racks are a pretty welcome addition, wish they had them when I was using the system.
