Terror's influence in SF Washington Square
Yesterday (Sunday, May 22), my wife and I were in North Beach with a friend who is a Russian Orthodox monk. We had decided to take him to lunch and then a stroll in the park. Mind you, he truly is leading a "monkish" lifestyle. So when the following occurred, he was, shall we say, a bit astounded.
Coming through the center of the park was a pack of about 20 cyclists, the majority male, all of them in their underwear. The odd thing to me is that none were on fixies, so I really have no idea if this is should be attributed to Terror in Pink or not. There were even a few women in underwear.
Sorry to say, the majority were also your typical human, a bit out of shape, pasty skin, sad looking undies, you get the drift. It was not a pretty sight actually, but I wouldn't have missed it for the world just to see my friend's reaction.
In any event, if someone knows the why of all of the above, it would be appreciated.
