big wheel races are back!

my video: in progress
i once owned a big wheel, it was back in the days of coloring inside the lines, and learning the alphabet. i never knew that the skills i learned then would all be useful in my early adulthood. in fact, coloring in between the lines is the least used of the aforementioned skills i learned as child.
for 7 years san franciscan residents have gathered on easter sunday to race bigwheels down the famous lombard street. this year was #8, but it was no longer lombard where the race was held. instead the race was moved to a less 'high profile and willing to sue' location in the potrero hill. vermont and 20th street.
the following movie may give you some insight to how far the race has come.
