Bird | Man

One of the most celebrated cyclists of San Francisco - PD Bird, and her buddy Popi (aka Johnny).


Rookie was infatuated with lovely PD and posed for pic with his new feathered friend.

This lovely bird|man pairing live in my neighborhood, and I often run into the two of them enjoying the two-wheeled life. A unique human|animal bond that I totally dig (so do Rookie & Cloud for that matter.)

You can find out more about PD on her blog.


And my cuties have a New Year's wish for you.


vélo en famille

I recently ran into my neighbor, Meg Lynch, the founder and former owner of my neighborhood haunt Velo Rouge Café. A few years ago, she sold her business to pursue some personal projects.

Namely her husband Adam and daughter Ella.


And how about this tri-tandem with a big girl seat for Ella when she gets a little bigger!? For now, that head rest for naptime along the ride is ingenious.

Hip hip hooray to another two-wheeled young lady growing up riding the streets of San Francisco with confidence!

Ride on!

Bike Shoes on BART - Guest Photo from Laura Lukitsch

My bike/filmmaker friend Laura Lukitsch sent me this photo this weekend.

Saw this woman biker (well her shoes, not her too much) on Bart the other day. Thought you might want to post it on the blog.

Send us your bike street fashion pics or share them with us on our flickr photo pool.

San Francisco Bike Party (SFBP) and San Francisco Yellow Bike Project (SFYBP) are joining forces on Friday, December 7, 2012 to gather toys and bikes for children for the upcoming holiday season. The toys will be given to a local fire station at the end of the ride on Friday night. The bikes will be inspected and repaired by SFYBP before being distributed to kids via a school-based bike swap.

The two organizations will be collecting toys and bikes for one night only during the monthly SFBP ride. Please bring any new and unwrapped toys to any of the resting locations during the ride. The ride will gather at McCovey Cove around 7:30 pm. There will be two stops at South Park in SOMA and Pier 7 along the Embarcadero. Please check SFBP’s twitter (@sfbikeparty) for the rest area drop off times on Friday, December 7th.
