chicas y bikes, from the bike lane, las neighborhoods in SF, red limbs, ride on, Things/Thoughts, weekend report
Last Saturday. What i wore, to DWNTWN photo opening, Bay City Bombers roller derby opening night, pizza, beer and a pal of mine DJ’ed late at night.
funny how the belt mimics the red cushion things from my helmet (on basket)
In what was a fun evening, starting from home to the tenderloin, then to Kezar auditorium, back to Octavia, off to Polk street then home – I finished with about 11.5 miles throughout the night. And you are looking at it. It really isn’t that hard.
Take it easy and you can wear anything.
It really isn’t about what you wear or what bike you ride, once you get out there and you know your limits and comfort zone, you will find out that if you can walk with it, you can certainly ride with it. Some peeps like their fancy lycra and fast bikes. Some people like their cute shoes and little sweaters. And that is nice and all, but for city roaming there really is no rush to get to the next massive hill and the next red light, really. The more there are of us out there, slow pace city dwellers on bikes, the more normal it will become.
Just get on your bike already and go do your thing.
Last Thursday, I stopped by the nopalands to check out some of the spots for the March 4th divis art walk. There was a block on Divis, between hayes and grove that was sooo packed with pedestrian, bicycles and music. It was very cool to see so many people flooding the streets on a Thursdsay night. I am a young city dweller but being in the middle of it all made me feel even younger, in a good way.
First I started with some coffee to put behind the workday and make the soul happy. After that I was good to go, looked for awhile for a spot for Frenchie and went to check out Chris McNally’s work at Mojo. I like his stuff and it was great to finally meet him in person.
After that I roamed some more, got food at Little Chihuaha then continued the Thrusday night over at North beach then to meet my boys over at tunnel top in nob hill. Good times. ♥Cheers!
