Getting the ♥Frenchie back from a tune-up session felt awesome. Like my mood improved 2349x automatically, honestly it had been not the best week at work -ok it was really shitty- and about a week ago I was more than happy to pick her up from the finest bicycle establishment in the northeast of the city, North Beach’s own Citizen Chain.
Here are some pictures, as if I haven’t posted plenty of shots, it has been really cool to know the shop from when it used to be across the street not that long ago. Maybe 2+ years ago [link]? I don’t precisely know, but the shop is certainly always looking good!
Here is a mini photo journal. Enjoy!

Let’s roll, we say goodbye to her fellow european Brit friends, the Pashleys. okbye ladies!
If you ever need a 3course unexpensive homie Italian meal, Capp’s corner will do ya good. Also for a beer and some sports at their bar in the middle of the day. Eeeh – it’s just a little something.
♥From the UK
Tarquinn class shared this super nice video of the Robin Hood Tax.
May I say that well, that Robin hood, such a hottie. Ooooh need to visit the UK soon, mate.
Reader Troiano has a commercial site where he sells bikes. These are on the pricey side (as in 900 euros) but thought I posted it because I find it to just a bit similar to rideSFO Phil’s infamous yellow bike, which is made by sdg components and there are only a handful (if not less) of its kind, according to him. Sweet.

I have seen this woman riding around quite often in the past few weeks. The other day, Calitexican and I were having a very important meeting at around beer:30 and the traffic light happened to be red, so I had a chance to snap a shot. Every time she seems so calmed and elegant, riding with super cute shoes. She could be somewhere in Europe, but you know what – this is here and this is now.
And San Francisco ain’t flat, honey.
+Check out the baby blue linus mixte. Very, very cool.
With the World Cup fever (Are you with Germany or Spain?!) Speaking of world cup fever, if you bike to the games, don’t forget to submit your fan pictures to the pool the fabulous gals over VeloVogue: Bike to The Cup
I’m hoping to be done with work by butterlap time. 7PM Ferry buiilding. See ya there.
New buttercup Bill has one a very cool gadgets to measure the distance, altitude and what not, and he has shared his little map above (thanks!!) from his first ride last week, which was great crisp weather and we all met tons of new people and riders that had first joined the ride. Very awesometastic!
I was crackin up when one of my friends pointed me to this picture taken by the lovely Kelley,
proof there is some skin under the color tights. I had been hot all day, mid50°s with heavy fog felt great.

Ade recently got a new camera and she wrote a cool post about some new women riders two weeks ago, over at Change Your Life, Ride a Bike!: sticking together.
Lisa Marie also took some super cool ones that day, and on Gwen’s first butterlap, she conquered those hills in her basket red bike like a champ. Ride on girlfriend!! Here is LMG’s set:
Come stretch your legs and detox your brain from work or play, ride some hills and sweat a little.
