Quite happy about this spring ahead time change.
Many years ago, I did show up to work an hour ahead early. I’m sure one of these years will happen again, with the exception that I haven’t worked on a Sunday in ages. I was beyond tired and still in school then. It was only me and this nerd with stinky breath that showed up early so, luckily I had my bike and went for a ride. At the time I had an old ‘beast’ of a bicycle but still took it everywhere.
That day I rode to north beach for some coffee since I was so early for work and to cool my jets. In 2004, there were no gourmet trendy coffee spots places near the downtown area. Cafe Trieste in North Beach and Atlas Cafe in the Mission, were my frequent stops in the early weekend mornings. Today I was reminded of this change in 2004 with an early morning, the company and north beach.
&coffee of course. Nice.
How did I get to this. not sure.
I have been riding my Italian bicycle for many years and have never felt as comfortable riding it as have in the last few weeks. Maybe it’s the company? timing, spring and a combination of taking some time off it and came back to it. Not sure and who cares.
Our crazy steep hills that this city offers any day, are super fun to descend with this blue beauty. It is not a matter of speed or equipment, it is grabbing what you have and enjoying it to the fullest. I love my bikes and I love my city.
Sure I prefer 20gazzilion times to ride the frenchie, but my smurfette road bike sure is tremendous fun. It will soon sport a new freewheel thanks to Eric.
Anyways. thought I’d share some no-hands action after butterlap last week. I’m pretty proud of this shot. Weeeee.
