Met tons of wonderful and skilled bike lovers out this past Saturday. Paul & the Rock the Bike! crew pulled everyone together as well as some fantastic musicians pouring from all over the Bay Area (including some cool peeps from Chico!). Bicycle Music Festival was great overall. I’m not sure how it was planned, but if next year you need permits Paul, I’m pretty confident that we, as a bicycle community will pull together and pitch in. Just look at the turnaround. Honestly I’m not sure how this all works, SF could be über strict about these things, but I know it can be done. Bikers are miracle workers, just look at those tremendous rides!! Ok. Well sounds easy, but im sure is lots of paperwork or something…
Anyhow – We caught on to the festival once it was heading to Dolores Park. The ride was pretty amazing throughout the park, on Haight street, down the wiggle then off to the Mission. Here are some pictures from last Saturday, June 20th. Bikes, music, fun, great weather San Francisco. Cheers! xo/♥!!
Then like MJagger would say, you can’t always get what you want, and what I want is to never ride near glass again. Omar and i stopped to refuel on coffee at Duboce Park cafe on our way to the Mission, and shortly after we took off happily with caffeine in hand, pffffffftttttt, I look down to a terrifying feeling of I-know-if-I-look-down what I will see. A FLAT!!!! Oh well. Got a new tire this time and that wrapped up a pretty fabulous Saturday fine afternoon in the city.
On Saturday, before meeting up with the peeps, I had to stop for some bike fuel at Arizmendi’s. I was running on Empty. We had been getting updates from Dusty, and the bike music festival had seem to move around a bit at around noon, so we all decided to meet at the beach chalet off ocean beach, snacks, chill time, great weather and hours of chatter.
Bay Area series Oakland vs. San Francisco. Baseball and enjoying the gorgeous day. Riding there and leaving was the most fun. Some parts around king street and the embarcadero were partially closed to cars after the game, so people were able to roam around, walk, catch muni etc. I’m mostly at the Oakland Coliseum so do they do that for every Sunday sunny game?
I’m only in for the bike valet parking, daytime stadium stroll and beer. Til next time (or year) Pacbell.
I dont think I’d go to the SF ballpark if it wasn’t for this royal treatment.
thanks SFBC! and its mighty volunteers/staff. and Marty & Company. Does Marty ever -not- park bikes?!!??
you never roam alone.
ride and chat.
Bay Area series. Good times. OKBAI.
This goes out to my gurrrlie friend. Big thanks. She brought me these tite!-tights from across the pond. Ironically they are French. Perfectly matching le bike. Not bad! These are certainly chatter-starters anywhere. I recently wore them for the maker faire ride, and when the purple bike was recently spotted. So here is some close-ups of them as requested 😀 They are a fun pair and yes, my friend knows me quite well. Is either tights or coffee, I’m easy to gift. /♥Love you muffin!!!
