Labor day weekend on wheels

With the Bay Bridge closed, there is no reason for people to explore other 'alternative' ways.
The closure of Sunday Streets is today. I can't believe this will be the 6th and last this year. I remember the first one in 2008, feels like it was not so long ago. It sure has been tons of fun and a great way to go since it's start last year (with only two dates)
This year the event covered 4 areas of the city (Embarcadero, 3rd Street, the mission and ocean beach) and that was jsut great. I sure hope that next year this happens even more and in new neighborhoods because the impact Sunday streets has on local businesses, peoples perspectives and living the day in a different environment, is very positive.
So, Ocean beach tomorrow. It will be pretty fun, swing by to say hi, I will be at the SFBC booth in the AM :)

One less 6 cars, dan makes it happen / Sunday Streets - June 7th

Then on Monday is the Giro di SF at the Levi Strauss plaza. Fancy lycra, muscle leg boys and fast bikes, you bet I'll be there.

Women's race.
I took these two images at the Giro di SF, Sept 2007.
My camera a tad too slow for these speed demons :)

Men's race.

Now get off the interwebz and go ride, see boys & girls, drink some coffee - GO!!!!!
