Oh man, San Francisco has been amazing so far. Despite the rain throughout the past two days, we’ve really been getting after it; riding, skating, eating burritos and exploring the city. Monday morning we hit our first skate park out in Alameda by 10 am, followed by a trip to “Hood Games” in Oakland, then a quick stop by Bicycle Fabrications, and finally ended up at Pacifica Skate Park. So after skating four very different parks we decided it was time for a little road ride to finish off the day. It also started raining, so we embraced rule #9 (screw rules) and headed out to seize the carp.
Riding over the Golden Gate Bridge was pretty surreal, especially with all the fog and rain. When we arrived in Marin we did a few climbs and a few ultra scary descents. After a couple hours we were all feeling pretty accomplished, so some Pakistani food and beers were in order. All in all I’d say I had an amazing first day out in SF. I made some new friends, learned back tails in tranny, got muddy and was all smiles. What more could you ask for?
Today we woke up around 7 for a ride leaving out of the Mash store, but not before stopping for coffee at Fourbarrel (I’ve had way too much coffee today). It had been raining since we woke up so I was well-prepared for the soak that was upon us. We rode with some of the Mash bros for a minute and then met up with Walton to cruise south and hit San Bruno. I was feeling pretty cooked by the time we got up San Bruno, especially since I’d only eaten a croissant. Oh well, I’m on vacation to get pitted so cheers to that.
