Always with the dogs in the sidecar. Always.
A worthy effort, but not up to the level of SURF Alaska, the gold standard of San Francisco hipsterdom.

Hey! Do you know cycling is up a lot in San Francisco during this Era of Fixie Bikes?
It’s because this is the Era of Fixie Bikes.
Cycling has its boom and busts and right now we’re in a boom.
This boom has nothing to do with having more bike lanes in the city recently.
But that’s why assigning more real estate to bike lanes won’t increase cycling 500% by the year 2020, which is the official goal* of SFGov.

“Ironically, although hipsters have existed in one form or another for decades, the hipster movement has become more mainstream, influencing the American status quo by supporting alternative art, music, and fashion. Like an epidemic of entitlement, the hipster condition has spread across America and over the seas to Japan and other countries susceptible to American culture. We see hipsters every day riding their fixed-gear bicycles on their way to studying film at local art schools. They drink the most expensive coffee and the cheapest beer. Imagine a world where alternative culture is pop culture; a world where Vampire Weekend plays the half time show at the Super Bowl instead of Bruce Springsteen; a world where stores selling used records and clothing are as large and as common as Walmart. The purpose of this show is to create awareness of the hipster way and the rise in demand for outrageous moustaches, vacuum sealed jeans, high-school sports tee shirts, and the over-consumption of Pabst Blue Ribbon.”
That’s harsh. Harsh but fair.
