I didn`t see The Burger King in that stampede.

Now I want to join it. That looked fun.

I would imagine real estate around there is cheap as hell? Not only do you live on the "Worlds most crookedest street" but one day a year you can`t leaving your own ****ing driveway...

That was really idiotic. Also, seeing a bit more of the street and less of that girl`s nose would have been nice. Stupid.

While the race itself is cool, this video sucked. All it was, was some loser who got it on his cell phone. If the title didn`t say Lombard street, you probably would never have known it. It would have been a better video if the person behind the camera were down at the bottom filming the racers zig zaging down the street. This one just looks like a bunch of wierdos going by on big wheels.

My big wheel came from a friend`s kid. He had out-grown it. Although I did see a lot of brand new ones there. I am in the brown jacket with the bike helmet on by the way.

Yet another reason to move to SF/Berkeley.

If only the cost of living weren`t so damn high.

I used to live around there - that is an awfully steep hill to take a big wheel down, that`s for sure!

My cousin took this video as me and about 100 other people raced down Lombard. I do appear in this video (in brown jacket, towards end). Here is another angle taken the in the third race (we got to go down three times) that is down the hill where a lot of people are crashing. You can see me crashing in fact if you look carefuly:
