wanna race?

SAN FRANCISCO / Eat your heart out, Lance Armstrong
Seventeen tricycles gathered at the top of Russian Hill on Sunday to prove once again why it is not a good idea to ride a tricycle down Russian Hill.

There were more than a couple of skinned knees, an occupational hazard for tricyclists of all ages, including the purported grown-up ones who took part in the sixth annual Lombard Street tricycle race.

The tricyclists arranged their mostly plastic vehicles at the top of the brick curlicue while about 500 tourists, realizing that something even weirder than what their guidebooks had warned them might happen in San Francisco, aimed their cameras.
