Bike NOPA organized a successful bicycle ride yesterday – join them on the last weekend of the month, why don’t you? They’ll always start and end in the North of Panhandle Area, conveniently located just west of the EaPA .
Organizer Lenore is Patty Hearst:
She matches up well with this awesome WANTED poster, anyway. (Warning: Photoshop just might have been used here, albeit more skillfully than what you can see in similar materials from Mayor Gavin Newsom’s inchoate gubernatorial campaign.)
40+ cyclists began the trek:
It almost looked like Critical Mass, that monthly illegal bicycle parade, except that NoPA Velo riders actually stop at red lights to let cross-traffic through. And that makes all the difference…
And then the handsome crowd…
…went up the hill to visit the secure undisclosed location where Patty Hearst’s kidnappers* kept her in a closet on Golden Gate Avenue in the NoPA:
Off the riders go, through Golden Gate Park and on up to the Presidio to hear of recent developments from Ranger Dale:
See you on the next ride!
“KING: People not happy with your pardon, Stuart Hanlon, the defense lawyer for the former SLA fugitive Kathy Soliah, now known as Sara Jane Olson.
HEARST: What a surprise. He’s also my kidnapper’s lawyer, too.”
