Struck by bike fever like the rest of this city? You’re in luck — a veritable horde of steel stallions is coming your way this Friday. While most folks are currently bartering in the nude in Black Rock City, a dogged band of holdouts has stayed behind in San Francisco with the latest installment of their ongoing bicycling celebration. SF Bike Party, a growing institution among young cyclists in the city, roams the first Friday night of each month with a different theme (this time: ghost town) and a different, moderately exerting route (this time: to the base of the Bay Bridge, via the Fillmore, Japan Town, and the Presidio). Peddle on over to the Civic Center’s UN Plaza after work for a general rollout at 8 PM. What to expect: freewheeling debauchery, inadvertently getting spurred in the ankle by a mustachioed neighbor, realizing you’ve seen all of your fellow cyclists before, dance parties at each stop, and stumbling off your bike to find a bush to pee in.
