Kate McDonald is probably one of the few cyclists in Berkeley who can compare riding in Tucson and Berkeley. Unfortunately, she was in a hurry and couldn’t talk much.

Kate says she went to the University of Arizona and has since moved to Berkeley. She says there are a lot more bike lanes and infrastructure in Tucson, but that riding in Berkeley is pretty nice.

I met Kate at a Berkeley Bowl West, which is a local grocery store that is like a Whole Foods, Safeway and Sunflower Market combined.

The store was at the intersection of two of Berkeley’s bike boulevards. There were a lot of people coming and going on bicycles. Here are a few more images from the store and the roads around it.

This is the larger of the two bike racks and is directly outside the entrance.

The Berkeley Bowl has some amazing produce.

  1. They were cool and there were a lot of them too. I didn’t count, but there were probably 30 or more between the two parking areas.

  2. Erik, you would not even believe this place. It was almost enough to get me to move… until I looked at the prices of housing that is.

  3. There is nothing anywhere like the Berkeley Bowl.  We used to go there to find Indian and Japanese vegetables there that you cannot find anywhere else and that are incredibly fresh.  Like you just picked them from your garden.  That place is incredible!  Yum 🙂
