For the uninitiated, BYOBW is the coolest tricycle-related event in San Francisco each year,probably the coolest in the world, let’s be honest…
But all hyperbole aside, this is one of the city’s finest community-organized events, and this year its facing increased costs and its certainty is in question.
Support the things that make this city rad and Donate to BYOBW– anything helps!
If you’ve never been, you owe it to yourself to check it out and pitch in, and if you’ve been you don’t need my spiel and you’ve already donated $20.
Hope to see you on your finest 3-wheeled joy-rig this Easter on Vermont street!
4pm-9pm, ride to follow. Did you miss the last one? If so, you messed up. Rumor has it that Comrades will be there. . . .
Santa Rosa Cycling Club’s Healdsburg-Ukiah 200k was last weekend!
Last year we stumbled upon Anderson Valley Bewing Company’s tasting room (and disc golf course, no shit) along the route, cool! The route also finishes at Bear Republic, cool! But we heard last time that we had missed Mendocino Bewing Company’s ale house , dammit!
So this year we decided to make it our triple/double brevet (3 breweries/2 hundred kilometers). I found this sweet skull:
And we stopped and drank beers along the way:
But at the finish, drinking some fine Bear Republic brews, Bob told us that we missed two breweries! Ukiah Brewing Co. and Ruth McGowan’s were right along the route too! Next year it’s on, we’re doing all five in one brevet.
But maybe we should “test ride” it over the course of a multi-day tour starting from SF? We could include quite a few more breweries and beer bars along the way (Russian River, 3rd Street, Lagunitas, Mill Valley, Iron Springs, Marin, Mt. St. Helena, Barley & Hops), not to mention hot springs & lakes to swim in. Yes.
The hot tub at the America’s Best Value Inn was cold because we didn’t ask for it to be hot in advance, and there was a channel on the TV that just congratulated us on owning a sweet satellite dish.

As usual, come eat food, drink beer, and watch a bike movie! Food served around 7:30pm, movie starts around 8pm. COME EARLY to help out!
ALSO! We’d superly appreciate any food you could bring to share! I’ll be away this weekend, thus won’t be able to glean quite as much as usual, but we’ll make it work! Bring anything and we’ll use it (half a box of pasta? Some wilting greens? That can of beans that’s been on your shelf for a year? Whatever).
