We might not have the consistent Southern California sun, or the beach lovers roaming with their cruisers like the ones Christa captures.
Our own Ocean beach, the outside lands, the roughest tides, the bonfires. As rough and unfriendly as it is, the salty seas mist slaps you in the face and exposes the beautiful and powerful Pacific Ocean whenever the massive fog is not hogging the view, looking great under our winter sun. There are beautiful beaches -in their own terms- in San Francisco, don’t forget.
& Bring your friends and/or family.
Before Ritual coffee was the new kid on the block on Valencia street (when it first opened in 2005, it used to be opened til 11PM), Fayes video on 18th and Farley’s in Potrero Hill were among the spots for me to get coffee during late nights.
Work, school or pure addiction. Maybe all 3.
Anyways, I like the fact that even with such a local roaster sensational explosion, especially around the south of market and mission areas, there is at least one place I could get still an Italian dose of illy. Ride on Fayes!
Here is the dress I wore last week. Wearing skirts and dresses isn’t really difficult when on the bicycle, unless of course you are already uncomfortable wearing them off your bike, right.
Wear what you want. If you are comfortable wearing any of your clothing or shoes walking, you’d be comfortable on your bicycle. That is my theory 😀
I received an email the other day about skirt guards and I have not really thought about them because I don’t think that the length of any of my dresses or skirts I wear, gets in the way or near the rear wheel – however, something I would highly consider before a skirt guard would be a chain guard. I think my tights would appreciate not having greasy-cool bike ring marks, though I think I’m pretty good about staying stain free. Coffee stains, now that is just another story.
