First video (1:43) covers gathering at Justin Herman and twilight ride down Market, including corkers being thanked by appreciative riders.

Daylight Savings Time starts soon, so rides are about to enjoy more daylight as well as warmer temperatures!

check out photos from same ride at http://indybay.org/news/2004/03/1675496.php.

§The Big Spill

Lesson: don't forget to watch out for MUNI rails when taking pictures or chatting.

This short video (:22 sec) shows what happens when riding videographer becomes more interested in videotaping than riding.

Note that claims of subject are unverified. I was riding in the back of the pack about this point and I saw no police rush or arrests, but, then again, things happen fast in a large moving group, and if you sneeze who knows what you can miss.

Besides taking 1/2 of Market all the way to the Castro, and all of several neighborhood streets, in this video (#3, 2:07 min) CM took all of Fell, swarmed Haight, took Fell again, then headed to the Music Concourse in the Park to mark the unfortunate beginning of contruction of an underground parking lot there. (more cars in park bad)

Katherine Roberts, who had led the court fight to stop construction, speaks about having her injuction overruled and future steps...
