Peninsula Bike Party's forth ride. It
was Halloween, so the theme was Halloweenish. There were something like
25 of us at the start, just enough that it felt like I was really
riding with a group when we hit the road.
Some of the costumes were a bit subtle
to really think of as costumes, but these guys were the pace setters in
I'm still learning how to capture the
effect of the blinking lights stretching out in front of me. This was
the best "riding" picture I got that night.
Our second stop was at the Catholic (I
think) Seminary in Menlo Park. Somebody mentioned that this statue
blessed vehicles parked in front of him, so I parked my bike there for
a moment. Supposedly his blessing helps you stay out of accidents. Hope
Our next stop was this awesomely staged
party at Stanford's Mausoleum. We could see the dancing and carousing,
but you had to have a Stanford student ID to get in. There was lots of
security, including County Sherrif's and black shirts. We just decided
to look for a more comfortable spot to hang out for a bit.
Our last stop was the gates of hell.
After that we scattered, each going to our different destinations. Some
headed north, others got the train to San Jose, and the rest of us
pedaled back south.
