Hello All!

This past Saturday I went on a totally epic bike ride with Aki and Kernel.

At home drunk on Friday night, we came up with an idea to do a lap of the city.

What resulted was 36 miles of pure awesome.

The day started at Alamo Square.

yo.

Followed by wiggling down the wiggle.

Check out Ak-dizzle and this dude.

Athletes!

We then turn down onto Valencia.

In the scene.

The hippest of the hipsters?

Probably.

At Ceasar Chavez and 30th we banged a left.

This was our pivot point for the journey – the goal was to get back here in one piece.

From SF Bike Loop

Rolling under the freeway, we ventured out to the more industrial side of SF.

Arriving to the end of the road.

Literally.

At this point, when we were just circling around on these wide abandoned streets, the stoke was visible.

There was a feeling of random adventure, the kind we used to do as kids, that had overtaken the group.

I wanna feel like this more often.

With the sun intermittently peaking behind these bid ol’ white fluffy clouds, the eastern-side of the city came out in all its glory.

From SF Bike Loop

This is my bike.

Dude.

From SF Bike Loop

And this is the Bay!

From SF Bike Loop

Your tireless blogger, keeping the silly maxed out.

From SF Bike Loop

… More Bay.

From SF Bike Loop

As we crawled around the edge of the city, your riders ventured upon ATT Park.

What a site.

From SF Bike Loop

And the yachts.

Damn 1%.

From SF Bike Loop

A little thumbs-up action for the Bay Bridge.

From SF Bike Loop

And of course – our favorite Circus in the whole wide world.

TEATRO ZIN ZANI YOOOOOOO!

From SF Bike Loop

Fiserman’s Wharf is kinda meh in my opinion – way touristy.

But, ya know what, a lot of ppl come here and love it, so you know what, i aint gonna hate – the spot is alright.

Cruising by the Aquatic Park …

From SF Bike Loop

Stoking on the blue …

And then, in all her majesty, the Golden Gate comes into view.

I just can’t get enough of ‘er.

🙂

From SF Bike Loop

A quick stop to ponder the meaning of it all.

From SF Bike Loop

And then into the old stomping grounds – the Richmond Baby!

From SF Bike Loop

Dudes, this is where I get a little emotional on you.

Every time I roll by the old pad, I just get so sentimental.

Seriously, 3 and a half years of unbelievable memories …

Cabrillo Street, you are still in our hearts.

From SF Bike Loop

And of course, we stop at SP for a brew.

From SF Bike Loop

As well as a chill sesh in the park.

From SF Bike Loop

Turning down onto Ocean Beach was raw as fuck though.

No joke, the winds got plain nasty out there.

From SF Bike Loop

And your adventurers were freezing something gnar!

From SF Bike Loop

But then, being the micro-cliamte capitol of the world it is, we turn left and get to a majestically warm Lake Merced.

From SF Bike Loop

And begin our ascent up Ocean Ave homeward.

From SF Bike Loop

… With a quick roll by the Alma Mater.

SF City College W00t!

From SF Bike Loop

There was a really nice 76 station on the side of the road.

We split a coffee and some snacks.

I rather enjoyed it.

From SF Bike Loop

We then ripped it down Alemany on one of the more fun stretches of road i’ve ever seen.

Also, the street art was dope.

From SF Bike Loop

… Back under the freeway, heading home.

… Pretty haggard.

From SF Bike Loop

After nearly 6 hours we’d completed our loop, discovered new spots, and basked in the old ones. What a friggin wonderful way to spend the day. To all my fellow bike adventurers trekking around SF and the cities beyond, stay safe, have a wonderful ride, and be excellent!
