SF Bike Party: Twins to Twin Peaks Ride

From SF Bike Party:

“Thru the darkness of Future Past
the magician longs to see
one chants out between two worlds
Fire – bike with me.”

Twin Peaks: landmark of our friendly, wholesome, respectable community. An outpost where even a handsome FBI agent can procure a Damn Fine Cup of Coffee, “black as midnight on a moonless night.”

But locals have long whispered about strange occurrences in this foggy nether region of San Francisco. Between these two pinnacles, one Ordinary and Good, the other Mysterious and Evil, is said to lurk a passageway to another world.

Along this winding uphill path, travelers have been known to wander into a place known only as the Black Lodge, wherein their dreaming minds come face to face with their own opposing doppelgängers. Here, dwarves dance backwards, speech is unintelligible, and long forgotten television shows haunt the memory.

Many is the bicyclist who has lost her way!

This August 3rd, the San Francisco Bike Party will journey into this great unknown, in search of our own evil twins! We have no idea where this will lead us, but we have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.
