SF bike party core group test/ride, from December 2010.

This was back in early December, a core group of San Francisco bike extraordinaries+enthusiasts, rode a testing a route of what would be the 1st unpublished SF bike party. A lot of outstanding efforts, time, and planning has been discussed and the route for this upcoming Friday event was tested a few times.
Many props to all the organizers, volunteers and chefs in the bike party planning kitchen making all that noise.

In preparation for this Friday's ride, below is a little video I made last year (at the time there was no URL available but now you can find all the info at I think I'm liking this presentation style of including a video, what do you think?! not bad huh..
I have also included the set of fotos below, these are too from the first test/ride Dec.2010 =)
