oh my darling...bikes

one of my absolute favorite movies growing up was "Now and Then," a movie about four best friends growing up together in a small town. one of my favorite scenes is the "oh my darling" song the girls bike to on their way to discovering a mystery. the girls have countless adventures and all with the help of their trusty friends and bikes.

so in love with these oil cloth cruiser seat covers! i think they are perfect if you want to protect your seat from fading from sun exposure and rain. katie kourture does a line of seat covers and bike basket liners, all very gorgeous and made with love! you can even pick which design you'd love for your own personal style.

found this adorable photo for a jewelery website at www.ornamentalthings.com. i think they did a really great job at putting a bike in it because it really caught my attention. the fact that the jewelery is adorable makes it worth while to browse through.

sweet hats



i have never really been into wearing hats until i started taking longer bike rides and found that they help to keep hair and sweat out of my face. i really don't like to wear them but under certain circumstance i like to and i like looking cute with it them, so i found a few that are eye candy pieces and advise that you check out the makers and more of their work by clicking on the links below the photos. happy hat shopping!

sunday streets: la mission

sunday streets: la mission

this past sunday i had the pleasure of riding through sunday streets en la mission. it was a vibrant day with good weather, good people, and good fun. there were so many bicycles out there! it was encouraging to see how people were taking on their part of sharing the road whether it be walking, skateboarding, roller blading, or cycling. i hear there's going to be another sunday streets in the la mission part II next month? i hope so!

happy weekend


happy friday ladies. this weekend will be filled with interesting adventures in the city. first off, the SFBC will be hosting bike parking valet at the Ferry Building every weekend now so that finding parking for cyclist won't be such a piece of work when shopping. and second, SF Sunday Streets are taking place in my favorite neighborhood, The Mission, from 10am to 3pm. you can find out more about the the events by clicking on their links above. and third, isn't this picture adorable?

bikes on a skirt


adorable bicycle print skirt, perfect for the bicycle enthusiast. perhaps wearing lace shorts or leggings would perfectly suit it for a sunny ride.

sometimes leggings don't always keep you from flashing passersby. i had to come to terms with that and found that perhaps skirt garters for biking are more reliable.

the bike bag issue






bike bag eye candy! i guess when it comes down to riding the city without a backpack on my back, i should find an easier way to carry things and this is what i found and adore. recycled and sustainable fabrics, all handmade with love.

it seems that rompers are a bicyclists choice of wear this summer. i think they are adorable, yet, i have steered away from them only because i'm blessed with a behind and shorts just don't compliment me. perhaps someone might have advice on this? i'd love to find the perfect style and fit for myself because i really just cannot resist!
