BEST BLOCK-ROCKIN’ BIKE /Amandeep Jawa’s bright blue, sound-rigged party-cycle — Trikeasaurus — is our bestest Critical Mass compadre and bike lane buddy, and an essential component of his impromptu FlashDance parties. This three-wheelin’, free-wheelin’, pedal-and-battery-powered funk machine has been bringing the party to the people — and leading spontaneous Michael Jackson tributes — from the Embarcadero to the Broadway tunnel for the past two years.

FLASHDANCE this Saturday
Ok peeps, put your dance shoes on and get your moves ready for another one of deep’s flashdances. Be there or be square.

Speaking of ‘deep, here are some pics when I joined him and his peeps for some lunch the other day. Like a little purple-tight monkey, I hoped in the back of his bike, sat on the rear little rack, (a rare sighting without the trikesaurus, or tandem, knowing us) and rode out to lunch for some yummy lunch.
The Renegade Craft Fair this year was cool. It is one of those events, you get to see everyone’s work, connect with many local crafters and meet other hand-made and craft advocates from around the States. There were lots of shops from etsy that I have been fans of for sometime, so it was very nice to see all their stuff displayed. Of course my eye goes toward bike-coffee related pieces, but in general good stuff. It took place once again in Fort Mason, and the turnout was pretty good I thought. Here are some photos, enjoy 🙂

I love their etsy shop! so cool to see them here in SF /etsy shop: vital
Arcane Arts from Portland gets its own post. I was lucky to chat it up with her last year, and we were both happy to see each other again this time around. Bikes and SF and Portland. Super! I love Adrienne’s work and if I could I’d buy her whole collection to have around the house and work 🙂
This year, I bought myself a set of the magnets and a print that, now lives alongside my bike poster pieces at home. Anyways, here is her work at this year’s fair, a picture of her lovely self & co. and the links to her work are at the end of the post, below the photos. Enjoy!!
Love it or hate it, le tour is now done. Congratulations to the skinny boy with the longest eyelashes.
I had a le outfit day. Went to check out some time trial last week at a friends house, accompanied by his new ice cream machine-maker-gadget, he shared with us all, home made pistachio ice cream. I don’t like ice cream much but, I make exceptions when with friends if we all go get ice cream, or of course, if they make it. Fabulous. Good stuff.
Speaking of le tour, let’s celebrate the frenchie’s bday, I assume it’s in July, since it is a ‘le tour de france‘ model after all. Anyhow.
Watch out cavendish, the frenchie is watching your silly grinch green lycra pants, mate… and will beat you to the closest coffee shop you don’t quite yet – know about.
And just for kicks, I found this over at a daily read and longtime inspiration, the fat cyclist.
After this weekend, I feel I should be wearing some polka-dot tights, but more on those hill climbing adventures soon. ♥xo/m
