Seeing Orange: Dutch Design Week SF begins with a bike tour, led by SFBC members architect David Baker and urban planner Robert Bregoff, making stops at retailers throughout the city showcasing cutting edge Dutch design. This free event is co-sponsored by the SFBC and the Consulate General of the Netherlands. Bring your own bike, or be one of the first 10 to register and reserve a Gazelle or PUBLIC bike for the ride. Stick around for the Seeing Orange Kick-Off event at the G-STAR Store, which is also the last stop on the ride.
