The Handcar Regatta - Santa Rosa, Ca. One of the best events I've ever attended. Look at the costmes! People really did it up. Loved them. And the handcar designs were out of this world. I wanted to sink myself deep into this culture. It was fascinating. It was a cross between Goth and Punk and Science and Old Time Period Piece and just outlandishness. Loved it.

The Bird wings are REAL.
He rode his bike through the crowds with ease!
