SFBP #33: Favorite Childhood Toys LookBook

We all know our favorite toys now that we are grown-ups are our bikes, but when were kids we had lots more time to play. This month, we’re bringing a bit of whimsy to the party with our theme. Reach back into the archives and pull out your G.I. Joes, your pogs, your rubber duckies and your baseball gloves, it’s time to play with your favorite childhood toys. Whether you liked princesses or pogo sticks, we all remember that one thing we thought we’d never be able to live without. Times have changed, but it’s never too late to embrace your inner child.  Here are some of our favorites to get your gears turning.  We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

We have some tricks up our sleeve this month so make sure you get there  on time (or even early) and stay until the end if you can.  Location is still TBD but it will definitely be meeting in the NOPA/Alamo Square area. As always, we can’t keep bike party rolling without your help.  Please consider being a turn guide to keep us on the right track.  Look for our volunteer coordinator at the meet up, she’ll be in full costume, so you won’t be able to miss her! Meet us at 7:30.  We roll at 8:00! Ding Ding!

  1. We stumbled over here by a different web address and thought I should check things out.
    I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to exploring your web page for a
    second time.

  2. While I love He-man’s blond page boy, it’s all about the American Girl Dolls. Can’t wait for another bike party!
