I could camp in front of the TV watching some March Madness, but I will eventually make it out plenty. Here is some cool stuff this weekend:
Here in San Francisco, we’re celebrating by having a community celebration at Market Bar (1 Ferry Building # 36), 6-11pm. This will be a great night with lots of awesome people and a fun party vibe.
NOPA VELO Spring Climb.
Meets at 9:30 at Apollo cafe. Via iBikeNopa blog – More info»
Some hands I simply love for the magic touch they provide with wonderful caffeine forms in the moments right before the early mornings make any sense at all. Maybe I will begin to photograph my favorite baristas around the city if I, happen to have half my brain before coffee.
Last Sunday, I attended a gathering for local women outside the bicycle community with common work/art interests. At the end of it, a few items including some sweet pieces of art were raffled and I, was the lucky winner of a beautiful framed photograph by Julie Michelle, also part of the awesome San Francisco collective: CaliberSF. She was the organizer of such inspirational meeting of minds.
The frame was safely transported via the Frenchie. I wrapped my coat around it and threw it in my basket, carried around a few districts, got taken out for Piccino pizza in the dogpatch (yes!!) and finally made to my casagrosa (casa+meligrosa). Super cool.
I honestly felt quite confident that I would be able to carry a glass-like object in my basket and not brake it. I’m terrible with things like that, but I’m also very cautious when I really don’t feel like messing up, which I was capable of doing -especially- on a Sunday afternoon.
Have you ever been nervous of carrying any specific load in your basket or bags, backpacks for carrying specific items? I don’t think I would carry anylarger piece of glass with me around, but this size was manageable and didn’t give me a problem carrying it via my beloved bicycle’s basket.
Framed photograph from Julie Michelle. Awesome!! – ♥thanks

And they come sans the attitude, deep V-necks and skinny jeans. They come in skirts, with baskets and bells, and they are my girls. (here is calitexican’s). Tattoos are optional. Welcome to Spring 2010.
They can still be good friends though. An Italian Cinelli and my very sassy Frenchie, with a caffeinated common interest. Bike parking at Blue Bottle coffee on Linden. A happy place.
