hell yes. last night was great. the rain (mostly) held off and it was a pretty chill mass. I only saw one or two angry motorists - one VERY angry guy driving thrrough Market and VanNess, threatening people. His backseat passenger spit at some bikers - douchbag.
I met Terror in Pink and ??? Fabian, whose screen name I dont recall. I also drank a lot and lost my friends and by the end of the night had at least 2 no/low speed falls. I ended up walking my bike several blocks because my balance was just gone.
yah, that was a good time. luckily the rain mostly held off till later. It was actually my first CM, and all in all it was fun. loved the inspiriational music. "eye of the tiger" really had me going.
met mattyO and the_loin, and terror in pink has lots of stories to tell. ended up getting burritos in the mission with her and a couple of eastbayers. cool cats, all. good times!
ditto. That's funny, my first cm too. I wish I could have hung on for longer, but had to be somewhere, and the ride started lateish. Next time. there were some really nice bikes there, and some kooky stuff as well.
