North The West Evening Ride


I am. And very happy about that.
These are from a quick solo ride, up and around the north-west-end of the city. This is San Francisco, and San Francisco has massive hills and I love them. Of course there's always way to cheat them and go around them, but sometimes is fun to go out to the city's greenest miles and just get lost. Middle-ride coffee pit stop was mandatory. Loving the late sunsets.

Hello headlands. You're next.

Quixote wheels.

Tulipsized me.

Scooby Doo House.

Bike fuel.

  6. I grew up 2 blocks away from the Scooby Doo House. Did you stop at Java Beach? The community garden across Great Highway from it was just a huge dirt pile most of the time I was a kid. I love sitting out there and watching the locals gather. Even though I haven't lived there since 1984, I still think of myself as a Sunset girl (in part).

  7. If only every hill had a view like that at the top! Love the windmill, too.
