Time was short to get from the shop ride I led that morning up to Ed & Steph's on Alberta. I was relieved as I sprinted up to see pylons marking parking spaces filled with people and their bikes and trailers.
Still, I only had my road bike. Not even a rack or bag to carry stuff. I found Steph and asked how I could help. She sent me to Aaron, who promptly linked this awesome little trailer to the SOMA. In the trailer? Tires! That's right, bicycle tires! What could be more perfect for the tire-dork to tow?
I watched one woman run across the street and into her house, yelling, "come out, come out, you have to see this!". It was quite a spectacle. Along with the heavy loads and big smiles, the thing that impressed me was how strictly we followed traffic laws. If the light turned red, the group that made it through the green would wait up ahead.
