Bicycle Music Festival in SF

♥With love from San Francisco!!

Met tons of wonderful and skilled bike lovers out this past Saturday. Paul & the Rock the Bike! crew pulled everyone together as well as some fantastic musicians pouring from all over the Bay Area (including some cool peeps from Chico!). Bicycle Music Festival was great overall. I'm not sure how it was planned, but if next year you need permits Paul, I'm pretty confident that we, as a bicycle community will pull together and pitch in. Just look at the turnaround. Honestly I'm not sure how this all works, SF could be über strict about these things, but I know it can be done. Bikers are miracle workers, just look at those tremendous rides!! Ok. Well sounds easy, but im sure is lots of paperwork or something...
Anyhow - We caught on to the festival once it was heading to Dolores Park. The ride was pretty amazing throughout the park, on Haight street, down the wiggle then off to the Mission. Here are some pictures from last Saturday, June 20th. Bikes, music, fun, great weather San Francisco. Cheers! xo/♥!!

Bike, music, festival, go.

A newly paved Scott street.

Then like MJagger would say, you can't always get what you want, and what I want is to never ride near glass again. Omar and i stopped to refuel on coffee at Duboce Park cafe on our way to the Mission, and shortly after we took off happily with caffeine in hand, pffffffftttttt, I look down to a terrifying feeling of I-know-if-I-look-down what I will see. A FLAT!!!! Oh well. Got a new tire this time and that wrapped up a pretty fabulous Saturday fine afternoon in the city.
