Bring Your Own Big Wheel 2007

Over a thousand race fans showed up today for the 7th annual Bring Your Own Big Wheel race down San Francisco’s Lombard Street, you know, the really crooked one. There were total of four runs down the hill with what must have been close to hundred racers, many with absurd outfits, trying to make it to the bottom of the hill on their plastic-wheeled vehicles. Here are the photos I shot of the big wheel chaos.

BYOBW is organized each year by Jon Brumit. Thanks Jon!

There were a bunch of cameras covering the action, including the following:

If I don’t have your photos or video listed, just leave a comment and I’ll add your link.

UPDATE 1: Jon Brumit has updated the BYOBW website saying that there was quite a bit of damage done to the gardens on Lombard Street by race fans. He’s asking for donations to cover the expenses, if not he’ll have to take care of it out of his own pocket. So if you had a good time at BYOBW and want to support what all of Jon’s hard work to make them happen, please consider making a donation so that he will be able to continue doing this event in the future.

Jason DeFillippo has posted an update on the situation over at SF Metroblogging.

UPDATE 2: Check out Michael Bean’s awesome BYOBW video from his two helmet-mounted cameras.
