I’ve been slacking on my blog updates. In my defense, the shop has been very busy and we are down a couple of mechanics (due to injury). Word to the wise…proceed with caution when descending a steep, winding high speed mountain road in foggy, wet conditions. Our co-worker Ken learned the hard way and received a broken collarbone and thumb after an unexpected date with a guardrail coming down the back side of Conzelman. The guardrail did keep him from a potential 30 foot swan dive off the cliff. Heal quick Ken.
Aside from working hard and injuring ourselves we’ve managed to have a little fun as well. Our annual summer Intern/Staff bike ride went down with great success. We did a nice loop through the park and ended up at the beach where we broke out some frisbees and kites. Some of our interns hadn’t ever crossed the city on a bicycle and the majority of them had no idea that Golden Gate Park came complete with a herd of buffalo. Fun was had, bikes were ridden… all in all a great day for our crew. If you find yourself on a ride out in the vicinity of the beach and feel the need for a caffeine jolt stop by Trouble Coffee and visit our pal Guilietta for an excellent cup of joe, a coconut or some delicious toast. Here are a few pics from the ride:
