scenes from the weekend

Mom, if you’re reading, don’t worry, I always wear a helmet! Just not for the picture.

It seems almost unfair how nice the weather has been in San Francisco this week, considering many of you are dealing with below-freezing temperatures. Not that I’m trying to rub it in, just mentioning it as it motivated a bike shopping trip this weekend. The bike I’ve been riding I’ve had since I was 14 (it’s a tad small and has definitely seen better days), so for Christmas Nolan gave me an IOU to pick myself out a new bike! So this weekend we did some research, stopped in a few bike shops, and did test rides before choosing this beautiful blue Linus roadster sport. I was so excited that I took it for a spin through Golden Gate Park just before sunset, and it was glorious. So that was the big highlight of my weekend! Hope yours was swell.

    I love Linus bikes! Yours is lovely. I test drove them in Oakland over the summer and I still want one. You’ll have to let me know how it does on the SF hills. Did you get it from a store in the city?

      Sweet! I really love mine so far and would absolutely recommend a Linus bike. And although I haven’t attempted any crazy hills yet, so far I’m very pleased and think 3 speeds will be more than sufficient.
      I got it from Pedal Revolution (21st and South Van Ness) and I believe they’re the only shop that carries Linus bikes in the city. But they were wonderfully helpful and it always feels good to support a nonprofit that does good work in the community. :)
