I remember saw these guys passed by in Golden Gate Park the other day. Work day fun day.
Here’s their story in our city.. Morning Ride to the Beach
With the Bike to the Beach bag launching online this month, Kirby Stenger, one of our wonderful Alite photographers, decided that we needed to shoot the actual “bike to the beach” morning ride that inspired the creation of the bag. So we got together in the Panhandle one morning and set our sights onTrouble Coffee, a fantastic coffee shop in San Francisco’s Outer Sunset neighborhood. Offering some of the absolute best coffee and toast in SF, as well as a unique, comfortable parklet in which to sit and enjoy your morning caffeine fix, Trouble Coffee was the first business to bring fame to this now heavily visited block on Judah Street. If you pedal there through Golden Gate Park, you will have the opportunity to pass such amazing SF landmarks as the Conservatory of Flowers, the De Young Museum, Bison Paddock, Stow Lake Boathouse, the Dutch Windmill, and finally, Ocean Beach! Check out our photos from our ride below… We hope it inspires you to set the ol’ alarm clock an hour early and squeeze in a morning ride yourself!
And if you live in SF, Trouble Coffee is located at 4033 Judah Street. We recommend pedaling to the Panhandle, taking John F. Kennedy Drive all the way to The Great Highway, riding down the coastline, then turning on Judah. Trouble Coffee is a few blocks up. And please remember to try the toast. You’ll thank us.
…through the Panhandle…
…past the De Young…
…pitstop at Stow Lake…

Our buddy Kyle and the gang down in LA Golden Saddle Cyclery cooking some nice and good looking kit here. I will get one fur sure..
You can see a few more images…HERE!
So starting today until May 7th(Kits should be delivered 4 weeks later.) we will be doing a pre-order for the Golden Saddle Cyclery kit made by Endo Customs here in Los Angeles, CA. The jersey can be purchased in white or black(you can even buy both like I did). A unisex bib and women’s short will be offered, along with arm warmers. Key features of each piece are listed on the items page. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Both the women’s and men’s jerseys are race cut. I’m not saying size up, that’s just the cut. You’ll have to decide how aero you wanna be. These things aren’t cheap by any means but compared to a lot of other brands out there I’d say say we’re offering up a pretty competitive price for premium goods manufactured here in the U.S. of A. And I’m damn sure you’ll be the best looking one on the ride, making you more confident and a better cyclist. ;)
And Arm Warmers…HERE!
Yep, that’s right, Pushbike had moved to a new spot on the corner of 22nd St. and Shotwell… We were invited to their friend and family soft opening last week. Yep again, the new store is legit, bigger!! more room to show off goodies. My quick observation is that, Sarah and Ian stay trued, exactly how they first started at their old shop. They only select and offer items that good in quality, durable to use and price that broke ass messengers can buy. I picked up a Modrobes cycling trench coat for my girl. A dark grey with hood, made from recycled material that could stand a light rain for one and a half bill. Oh man, lemme say no more how much she loved it. Ok, there a lots of things going on in the City this week, and if you from out of town, you MUST go to 22nd St. and Shotwell to check Pushbike out. Holler!!

Now I know what CycleZine Sean had been up to these days….at first I thought he changed his hobby to trainspotting, but nope…He’s been working on a new fresh off the paint booth baby blue Bridgestone.. I will let Sean give more details when we get a nice detailed photo shoot. For now, a few quick snaps of a classy bike that can be seen in the Mission…. I like that TA bag man… !!!
October 1 - Art Opening, Cafe Royale @ Post St.
If you are free tonight we’d love to see you at this art opening. Cafe Royale is a nice little wine and beer bar with a great pool table and neat old tiled floors, and they’ve offered their walls to our good friends at The Loin.
OF PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE:
Nathan Lee, CycleZine’s own master-blaster of the web, will be showing a series of designs. We can’t wait to see them, and if it is anything like the now famous “I (crash) SF” shirt that he worked on with Tori, they will be selling like hot cakes in no time. Mostly, though, we really love a chance to applaud for one of our friends when they get a nice show like this. Let’s all celebrate the achievements of a good and righteous dude.
ONE LAST NOTE OF URGENCY:
We’re very excited about this, and hope to see you all there. Cheers!
