Here are two things we're happy to see together at last: bicycles and tacos.
Timothy Holt, aka Taco Bike Timmy, is a restauranteur and cyclist (not necessarily in that order) who sells yummy fish tacos from a custom-built bicycle he pedals in San Francisco and Healdsburg, California.
Timmy's rig is pretty special, and he spoke to the charming Vélo Vogue blog about his ride, which even includes a four-slot griddle so none of the meats touch each other.
VV: Tell me about the history and transformation of the Taco Bike:
TBT: I bought the orange Mexican cargo bike in 08' and wanted to prepare and sell tacos from the bike. Figured out I couldn't do it on my own, so I asked my friend Todd Barricklow a Santa Rosa artist (killing time studios) and he accepted the challenge. It is a one of a kind, art piece. Outfitted for any event from Dolores park to burning man. He put in a lot of time and when you see the bike, it shows. From the hot water hand sink, to the back eating area behind the seat. Truly a genius.
Indeed! Check out the clever and stylish design: Integrated stand-up dining area, with condiment stand, hot water sink, and trash receptacle. Nicely done!
