The 2010 SF Bike Expo roundup

Cow Palace -- Saturday, November 6th
The SF bike expo was a long but super fun day of everything bikeuniverse.
We had a break between the fashion shows at around 1PM and later that afternoon, so we got to wander around and enjoy some bike action. Was nice check out the booths, meet up with my peeps, super fun to see the cyclocross races and the butt-kicking women, and the awesome BMX/dirt jumping events. SO RAD.

And so it goes, the day began like this:
KT, Kevin and I in the morning. We met for coffee but I don't think I was fully conscious yet - I certainly needed lots of my beloved caffeine that morning.

Dave, Ed and their schwinn crew. These peeps of ours are always such early birds, love it!!

The scraper bikes from Oakland, were in the house. The always bring a freshly made soundtrack/CD and sell it for about 5$-10$. Sweet!

Riding back
And then, after a long day of bikes and fun, we were ready for some food and then, more party!! A few of us from the fashion show, Dan from Monkey Electric, Mia and many other of our peeps, oined the Bike Savvy pedal ride back into the city. Good times!
I'd say we bike about 8-10 miles on the way back (Geneva> Alemany> San José> Valencia --- Etc.)
