Re: Le Partycar

yeah, friday just had too much bikeness to fit it all in.  had to sacrifice partycar & CM & gestalt for tgif kegs/band & bike film fest & post-party.  BFF was solid, especially the live performance by Ines Brunn (holy sh*t!), Road to Roubaix, the waffle bike, and the cool music video by Bat for Lashes (mmmmm).

as for the friday NRLB, I think we have a new non-BTWD record - 26 people! damn!  27 if you include solo warrior altendorf.  don't think there were any mechanicals and everyone had a sporting good time, despite the Industrial rd. bypass and lack of the 'cross section/bridge to nowhere.  was cool to see a strung-out peloton along lagoon road/sierra pt pkwy - such was the size of the group that it looked "together" despite being spread out over a mile by the Hobinator's stretching of the elastic.

plus, even if you aren't into hipster watching and sausage it's always fun to watch my face turn different shades of bright pink after a cider or two!

and who wouldn't want to spend their Friday night doing that?!

Alrighty, I hear records were broken in terms of numbers of riders on
non-BTWD! Sadly yours truly wimped out, but shall make sure that part
deux of this important tradition is adequately attended: Partycar!

Those of you that may be new to this... here's how it works:
- We meet at the grassy knoll @ Charleston & Huff, 17:17 (that's 5:17
for you 'murricans)
- Ride our pretty bikes over to some liquor store to purchase le biere
- Catch the 5:46 Caltrain
- Upon arrival, proceed to Gestalt @ 16th & Guerrero where there's
double-decker bike parking, lamb sausages (yeah yeah, I know it's more
sf2gy to eat vegan kielbasa, but I like lamb, ok?), and more beer than
a partycar full of sf2gers can drink in one night.

Since attendance records were broken in # of bikers today, let's try
to break the record for partycar attendance as well! What better way
is there to celebrate your first SF2G than with your first partycar?
