The part of Spokesfest that I was really bummed about missing ride with Scul, since I'm too vanilla to feel confident showing up at one of their regular "missions" But if I showed up as part of the "civilians" at Spokes, I thought I could maybe sneak my utilitarian retro-grouch bike in with all the cool bikes without being too obviously out of place.
It turns out that I did get to see the "mission" go by, as we were just getting home as they hit Harvard Sq. It also started to pour just as they were arriving, so the video is from my front porch, which isn't quite as close up as I'd like, but it's still fun to see the fun bikes go by. I did see a fair number of "civilians" although the ranks may have been thinned by the rain.
My favorites are the guy with the Disco ball at about 0:16 and the last guy. Unfortunately I didn't manage to record sound (or probably had my finger on the microphone). It's unfortunate because that's a big part of the Scul experience- thumping disco that you can hear from blocks away.
