Hundreds of people and filled Vermont Street along McKinley Square to witness an annual tradition of inertia driven, downhill mayhem, the Bring Your Own Big Wheel race in Potrero Hill.
Originally starting in 2000 by one man, Jon Brumit, the race has become a cultural phenomenon among Bay Area residents.
Moving from famous sidewinding Lombard Street to less famous but equally twisted Vermont Street, Bay Area residents arrive in full costume to participate in this two hour long event.
While free to view and participate, the “no trace left behind” event costed nearly $4,000 according to on-site volunteers collecting donations. Fees went to security, permits and portable restrooms.
Traditionally each race has been set to take place on Easter Sunday, rain or shine.
On this particular Sunday, I pulled triple duty while covering the event.
