Best Photos from the Annual Big Wheel Race Down Vermont


Yesterday the annual Bring Your Own Big Wheel extravaganza took place in Potrero Hill, inspiring scores of revelers to suit up as unicorns, Oscar Mayer wieners, gladiators, and giant slices of pizza to race tricked-out tricycles down the twisty part of Vermont Street. In addition to the usual crop of Easter bunnies, several transportation-themed costumes careened down the street, from a pair of boxy BART cars to this one dude who seemed to be using a Lyft mustache as a furry canopy. Photographer Bhautik Joshi captured much of the merriment on Flickr, and we've rounded up some of our favorite snaps from Instagram as well, including at least one dramatic spill.

Big wheel racing is a big hobby of mine. It's right up there with chewing on things and belly rubs. #byobw #byobw2015
