hey hey bike party people!
thanks to the 300-400ish of you who showed up to the ride. hope you got a chuckle over our april fool’s day post and hopefully you weren’t toooo disappointed to see there were no segways. well, for free anyway.
moving on, how about that bouncy castle at civic center?! that certainly was no april fool’s joke! it was there! see….
and the costumes people! my word, y’all out did yourselves!! there was some range of silver people, sf giants themed robots, stepford wives, and other sorts of cyborgs congregating at civic center!
even some of your bikes got in the action
and then it was time for roll out…
we cruised slowly to our first party stop, duboce (aka “dog poop”) park. y’all really got the party going on there for awhile. dancing away that fierce chilly wind that started to pick up.
then we rode out again, this time to our second stop, the children’s playground in golden gate park
second stop: children’s playground. whoa, fun. long stop cause the party just didn’t want to stop, so why should it? 20 ft cable rope gym thingys, rubber bouncy floor made better by dancing on it? so rad. this picture totally fits the mood. love it!
thanks to you guys for leaving the park as you found it and respecting the structures. we appreciate the cops left us alone while we were partying it up in the playground. we respect the area, cops respect us, less hassle for everyone. ya dig?
the last leg of the ride is where our new “ride prepared” comes in. lots of stories of flats and people getting lost. please consider riding with extra tubes, a portable bike pump and a map of the route we provide for each ride. and make a friend or two or bring your own! bikey friends are very generous and can help you out if you lose your way.
that said, we cruised through the sunset district back through the upper haight and ending at the panhandle.
and the stepford wife? she celebrated with a refreshing beverage right next to her stepford husband.
can’t wait for next month’s ride! see y’all then. bring cameras and don’t forget to join our flickr group! thanks to all the amazing pictures to choose from this month bike party people!! y’all rock!
