Bike Fashion Show | Bike Expo,Cow Palace Saturday Nov 21st, 2009.
My girl Gwen is Gwentastic!. She rocked an awesome show along with Momentum magazine and many, many awesome designer and bike apparel/accessories/bikes and all fun bikey things.
Thought I’d share some pics from behind the scenes – so here we go.
I was pretty stoked to be part of the show, it was good fun hanging out with peeps and fellow participants that you see around SF bike lanes and events everywhere. Because really, if you live in SF and ride a bike, you will eventually meet. That said. It was a blast.
We had some pretty rad hairdressers that made our hair smell like yummy stuff from the bumble and bumble product line. There was also a makeup crew and it was pretty fun to see everyone getting dolled up.
Most people wore 2 outfits and most of us had never participated in such thing. I think the most challenging part was to ride the bike down this wooden ramp and try not to trip but fortunately, nothing like that happened. I suppose that the bike in this case, was the equivalent to a pair of 4-inch high heels on a catwalk. Practice makes perfect… right.
The bike assigned to me was by local bike brand SyCip, which I was pretty excited about. Would like to check this bike out in street environment. It was equipped with an ortlieb pannier and an über cute handlebar bag/purse by pocampo for one of the outfit sets, I’m a huge fan.
I wore pants. Yes, and it was plenty fun. They were by Sheila moon, here is the evidence:

Everyone rocked some great clothes. A main factor was that all the clothes were so comfortable, and fun to wear. I can’t recall all of the brands that were represented, but if you are into reading about and/or checking out many indie bike brands and many local ones, you may have heard of them.
♥It was a great event, and I was so happy that many of my peeps made it. Thanks Momentum, Gwen and everybody that made this event happen!!
