Saturday Retro Ride


Good morning.
This past Saturday I joined up with the 10 speed retro crew, as I like to call them. Mellow pace, coffee brake, Paradise loop in Tiburon and a few hours of good riding, chatting and checking out each other's steel frames. We made a pit stop at the bike swap and then headed out for some riding. More riders join in and out throughout Marin. A ride where down-shifters, wool jerseys and beautiful scenery ruled!

Post-coffee in Tiburon

The boys. Mt.Tam is staring at me...

In front of me. Some mellow cute tourist girls. and Eric.

Behind me. Not many scuba steves droids (that talk in 'left!' yelling language)were anywhere to be seen.
Rare for a saturday AM.


Wrapped around my home state flag.

old. new. old.

    i think you look great! thanks for posing. we should get together and think of a good project that will work for both our blogs. maybe as simple as a week of riders + bikes?

    also, you can contact me at mai [at] fashionist.
