The Big Wheel race is actually a pagan tradition dating back almost 14,000 years. Not everybody knows that.

    I honestly have never been able to wrap my head around the dudes (it's ALWAYS dudes) that wear the mono-color body suit. WTF is the thing with that? Is this some kinda fetish I'm not aware of? Maybe some sociology comment on society ("We are ALL Blue Man Group")? Something else? I swear I remember seeing this "costume" going back to the 90s, and it has NEVER seemed to make sense. WTF?

    Also, BYOBW is fucking awesome. I am glad that the tradition has been kept alive for ≥14,000 years.

      At some point, it’s a tradition because someone did it last year, the year before, and the year before that.

      Betcha it is related to increased online availability and/or dramatically lowered cost of those suits.

    Props to 49'er guy, not only for the boss costume, but for being one of the few people there riding an actual Big Wheel(tm).

    Ah, my parents were there too. They did a few runs on a pink and purple Big Wheel.

  4. Alas! We were going to go, then the baby decided to take a very long mid-day nap.

    Fun fact, this was the reason for the invention of the first wheel. So much more successful than the previous "bring your own big cube"
