art vitamins, bicycle parking, bike racks, from the bike lane, las neighborhoods in SF, thanx so much, the frenchie, top shots
I am very thankful that I didn’t get sick at all in 2010, asides the allergy cases and hangovers,
I did pretty good. Started this first week pretty mellow, bici bike basket was loaded with
yummy eats and since I was a rainy first weekend of the new year, took it real easy.
Got lots of energy, chismes, events and posts and photos to share, naturally at its own pace.
You know EZ baby.
On another note, this weekend I enjoyed watching a phenomenal game when a PAC10 team CRUSHED the #1 team
that hadn’t lost in 90 games. Stanford *ENDS* UConn’s winning streak.
I cant wait for March Madness for both men+women’s teams.
I’m not a huge fan of Stanford, but they have flawless defense.
Cardinal cut into UConn’s invincibility via espn
Don’t get me started about basketball. That is all for now.
♥Okay, ride on.
There are some photos and events I didn’t get to publish last year, I will post them in the next few weeks of the new year so, some kind of quasi-review of 2010.
The Holiday Renegade fair was fun and as always full of cute overloads. My camera was almost dying so I got to snap some photos. I got to hang out with my handsome Hambone Design peeps at first, then wandered around to see what new shops and findings I encountered.
A serious issue here is the bike parking situation. Racks, lack thereof. I recall using the front one for a couple of events (by the 8th street entrance) and for the rest such as the Green festival, I recall having the Bike parking valet SFBC service. Are there not enough events here to have a sufficient amount of bike racks, did I totally missed them, or does the management of the concourse not know/nor maybe has not decided to get in touch with 311 (Link: Request a bike rack!) to get those racks installed? Seeing how easy would be to cut some of the cables of beautiful bikes attached to fences or very weak hand rails, brakes my bike heart to even think that thieves thrive for these situations. Us bikers are a crafty bunch, there was an invasion of bikes creativly parked all around 7th/8th Brannan. I parked at the corner of Room and Board, closer to Townsend.
What is going on here concourse, allow more bike racks!!
Moving along –
They were so funny.
Later in the evening, I met an enthusiastic young man and his camera, and he so nicely asked if he could take my photo (Thank you!! It gets on my nerves when I catch people I don’t even know trying to be sneaky, well – I also snap a million photos of people, but you know what I mean those lurker types…not cool). I said yeah of course. He told me I was the most eccentric gal in the building. Mmmh ok, if he thinks so. LOL
Til next time Renegadettes!!

Above: Super duo at this year’s Supermarket Streetsweet. If they look familiar, you have probably seen them on their tandem around town. If you were a reader of my now retired column in Momentum What to Wear, Joel y Cecilia were featured and printed in the April issue [link here]. Very cool!
How are you celebrating the Holiday season?! December just sneaked in and now I can’t wait for the end-of-year celebrations. The Holidays are kind of special, people drive wasted, family members fight, family members make peace, people cherish and all kinds of emotions are stirred up upon each one of us reflecting or not, this past year and getting ready to welcome the next one.
This year I put some small decorations at home including my warriors basketball ornament, but decided to spend a bit more time on my bicycle than I did looking for a fuschia pink, white or red tree, so I decided to decorate my ride instead. In past years I’ve had the basket lights, so this year I also added some little holiday ornament things to saddle. The basket has a small wreath with mini-Poinsettias around the basket.
