Nine months out of the year I bike commute to work in full waterproof gear. This isn't a fashionable affair by any stretch of the imagination. Summer and Fall months finally afford me a chance to shed the Gore-Tex and get outside to enjoy some sun. Here in San Francisco our parks are our beaches with people enjoying literally every spare inch of sunlight while it graces our presence. With that in mind I picked my essentials for a successful day at the park. Grab your favorite book, sit back, take a tug of your beer and enjoy.
All year long in San Francisco, we count down the days ‘til summer. Though it usually doesn't hit until September, we cant resist baring our pasty skin and hitting the park no matter how windy it is. Blame it on the longer days and the enchanting glow the sun casts over the downtown buildings, but there is NOTHING like a San Francisco summer. Mark Twain may have wrote "the coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco" but I'm sure if he would have stuck around a few more months he would have also named it his most magical summer. There is a certain quality to this city in the summer. It's a fleeting season that forces us all out of our winter hibernation and into farmers markets and onto bikes to emjoy every bit of it that there is. 
01 LEVEL TRACK BIKE
Simplicity defined is what this bike is all about. This one was actually owned by a professional Keirin racer in Japan. Support your local bike shop and go to them if you're interested in something similar.
05 Dolores Chiller bag
by timbuk2
Looks like a messenger bag but insulated like a cooler. Fits about twelve beers plus a bag of ice. Instant party.  www.timbuk2.com
02 Rapha hoodie (rapha.cc)
BY PAUL SMITH
People have been taking stabs at sartorial cycling apparel for a while, but Rapha's collaboration with menswear hero Paul Smith finally got it right. Merino wool with a windbreaker front makes this hoodie exceptional for The City. Warm and breathable means you aren't a sweaty mess after your bike commute to work, and a cycling jersey inspired pocket on the back holds your little stuff.
03 FAT TIRE BEER (in a can)
Honey sweet and smooth Fat Tire is the perfect compliment to a good deli sandwich and is easier to pack in and out of a picnic than bottles. www.newbelgiumbrewing.com
04 Alite monarch chair
This chair is awesome. When not in use it folds into a pouch the size of a burrito. Sets up like a tent and keeps your bum off of the damp grass. www.alitedesigns.com
01 CLARK BY JEFFREY CAMPBELL
My shoe obsession this season is the flatform sandal, i'm pairing  the "clark" by Jeffrey Campbell with skinnies, shorts, and dresses. www.solestruck.com
