SFBP #27 City Lights: Beatniks and Bridges LookBook

According Wikipedia, the great knower of all things, “The word “beatnik” was coined by Herb Caen in an article in the San Francisco Chronicle on April 2, 1958.” We believe it, so we’re celebrating with a party on bikes!  If you need help with your look, we’ve got you covered (in black!).  Don’t forget your Bongos!

      The map is up now. It’s also usually posted on our Facebook page the day before the ride. The blog sometimes lags a little bit behind.

    I love this theme. See you tonight
