This last year has brought a number of new people into my life. I am amazed at how interesting and involved all of them are. Every one of them has something intelligent to say. Every one of them is talented and accomplished. When I spend time with them I am reminded, pleasantly, that I need to step up my game so I can keep up. Each of them challenges me in a different way and I walk away from our time together full of ideas and inspiration.
While all of the women in this picture have many talents and interests, what they bring to the big picture of American cycling as an everyday activity of normal life is immeasurable. Each of them has found a way to shatter the myth of bicycle as sport toy and brings that knowledge to the world everyday.
Some of these new people got together to celebrate our lovely Cali's birthday. This is them-
From left to right-
Lisa Marie of Hambone Designs.
Calitexican- this chic can write.
Meligrosa- My first partner in bicycle blogging crime : )
Kristen- Just a day after Meli and I decided to start this little project of ours, Kristen asked me to join her over at Vélo Vogue.
Gwen- A recent addition over at VV. Gwen is also the fire behind the fashion shows for the SF Bike Expo and SFBC's Bike Away From Work parties.
Lilia- Her thoughts are provoking. Her sense of humor is silly. She looks better in pink than I do.
Ramona- another of the VV women and the brains behind the "Bike Wardrobe Remix".
I raise my glass to you all, my fellow SF bicycle bloggers. You have all made an impact and I am honored to know you all!
