Your Monthly Cycle: SF Bike Party Strikes Again

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.

Lucy's been able to live lots of places but holds her cornfed/pie-fueled Midwestern roots most dear, maintaining too loudly and too often that the Outer Richmond is the Midwest of SF: driven through to get elsewhere and knocked around for no reason (but what other neighborhood has bison?!). You can find Lucy letting things languish in her fridge, purposefully (limoncello!) or not (yogurt...), mouthbreathing, scouring Golden Gate Park for apartment-worthy items, sleepily serving up double nonfat half-caf-half-non-caf lattes at a certain cafe, skulking in various other ones, and yelling under cover of night and costume at SF Bike Party.
