This event was postponed due to rain, again, and has been reschedule for Sunday, November 14th.

Drob says:

We’re going to meet in Golden Gate Park (JFK Dr between 8th Ave and 10th Ave) from 10:30 and 1pm on Sunday, October 17th. Last year seemed a little over scheduled so I’m thinking we do it like the old days and just meet in the park and play it by ear from there. Don’t get there too late thought because I’m sure we’ll take off on a ride sometime after lunch – 2pm or so? Bring lunch or get something around the park.

We’ll be riding spots close by like the bandshell or the stage. If you get there and don’t see us, call me at 415-971-2940.

This is mainly a bike event with the ride and all but the park is closed to traffic on Sunday so you could come with your bikes, skateboards, kids, or whatever, and hangout – just like back in the 80’s when a typical weekend had 50+ bikes and skates.

Hope you can make it!

I have no clue what the names of most of the pictured riders are, so if you're one of them, shoot me an email and I'll tag you in.

Dave Vanderspek Memorial Ride

Here’s a short edit I filmed of the jam, specifically the portion that took place at Golden Gate Park. Most of the footage is of Day Smith and Pete Brandt, with some additional clips of Savoy, Jackson, Ian Dugas, Old School George, and Bill Freeman thrown into the mix. I apologize in advance to those of you that end up hating the music – it’s a flatland video, and that pretty much ruled out everything but electronica.

[5/4] Squirrel just sent this in as a reminder. Be there, or… be elsewhere.


[4/2] Oldscar called me up earlier about this; the show’s going to be on Saturday, May 9th at Calabazas, and will start at 9am. There will be prizes in a variety of categories (ex: best-looking ’70s race bike), and I’m assuming that there will be a BBQ. So, regardless of whether or not you’re old-school, show up, grab some food, check out some vintage bikes, and ride.
