BYOBW 2008: Damn, I missed it again


Photo by Scott Beale

What was I doing on Easter Sunday? Oh, riding around on my bike drinking beer in West Sonoma County.

Where SHOULD I HAVE BEEN?

Oh, that's right...IN SAN FRANCISCO FOR THE ANNUAL BYOBW!!!!!!!!

Geez!! This whole business of having Easter be in March is really screwing me up. I kept thinking it was going to be in April and it wasn't until a friend posted pictures on his Facebook account that I realized "oh...wait, isn't that in April? Oh, oh...no...but...Easter is...EASTER ALREADY HAPPENED!" >:-P

As I mentioned in an earlier post, they had announced it would be moving from Lombard street but weren't sure where it would be held. Apparently the neighbors of Vermont Street in SF's Potrero Hill were okay with the idea and it was held at Vermont & 20th street. From the looks of this picture, it looks like it's a pretty curvy, hilly street so that satisfied me as a good alternative to Lombard Street.

So, once again, I am lame and posting others' photos instead of my own. But oh well. You can check out the official website here.

Without further ado, I am proud to announce the annual BYOBW (that's Bring Your Own Big Wheel) Event photos (three of many) from 2008:

Laughing Squid site is awesome for great photos/videos.

What I want to know is WHERE did THESE guys get their big wheels?

Are there little boys and girls all over SF now missing their trikes? Did Toys 'R Us just have a rise in Big Wheel sales?

Hmmm...
