Elise Romero states, “Ang was a great instructor! I even hopped on a bike the next day and felt way more confident navigating both my bike and the road.”
Raeanne Heuler states, “Wow! I never knew there were so many grocery stores in this area. Oftentimes the grocery stores on campus are charged heavily but the stores that we stopped at were priced normally. I am moving to North Oakland soon so I will definitely be revisiting a lot of these stores! The bike event was really fun and I will definitely be biking to campus a lot this upcoming school year.”
Vicky Zhen states, “The bike trip was easy and fun and safe. Enjoyed exploring and supporting the immigrant run supermarkets. I got to try some good new snacks!”
For this bike route, we stopped at five stores: Las Palmas, Kohli’s, Sultan Bay, Bombay Mart, and Seoul Mart. These businesses have all made their presence throughout the Oakland area and offer a diverse set of products that you can not find in your typical American grocery store. In addition, they are all locally owned!
