BYOBW: Bring Your Own Big Wheel; Race and Get Hurt

09Apr09

Every Easter Sunday, adults gather to act like kids again as they race down a dangerous, windy road in Big Wheels in front of a cheering crowd of hundreds at the 9th Annual BYOBW. Usually held on the famed Lombard St., this year it will be held on Vermont St. in Portrero Hill. Contrary to popular belief, Vermont St. is actually “crookeder” than Lombard! The event begins at 4:00pm this Easte Sunday, April 12.

Word on the street (sorry) is that SFPD will be cracking down on this year’s event, ticketing people who violate any laws, as needed. What’s with SFPD repeatedly trying (and failing) to regulate on these publicly organized events that are uniquely San Francisco?
