SF Bike Party Ride Tonight

The monthly SF Bike Party ride is tonight — apparently they are adopting a “tweed” theme, after the tweed-cycling subculture. In the US, tweed cycling is kind of a vestigal offshoot of steampunk. In the UK, “Tweed Runs” are attire-themed rides, where people dress in moderately old-fashioned clothes (according to Wikipedia).

So, the Bike Party is tonight, and the SF Tweed group is riding on November 6th (see Facebook for details┬ábut don’t ask me any questions because this is the first I’ve heard of it).
