i love haighters

Here's a lesson on how to turn left while looking incredibly hip in the Lower Haight.

First, dye your hair orange. Then jump into some short shorts and hop on your bike.


To keep your legs and arms warm in case the fog rolls in, slip into some legwarmers and fingerless 3/4 length gloves. Make a left turn signal.



Make sure to look for oncoming traffic when you cross the intersection (also scanning the Wiggle for other cuties en vélo.)


A unique style in a unique part of town. I simply love the Haight!

Love it. At first the hair sold me on the style, but on closer look it is definitely the gloves and leg warmers... just so different and bold to go along with the hair. I also like what appears to be a built up wheel on the front, I love high flange hubs.

Agreed! The legwarmers and fingerless gloves are quite a trendy look for SF cyclists.

Are you sure this isn't a missing scene from "Run Lola Run"!?
I particularly like the third shot - the participants are so completely engrossed in their own "thing" - just follow their eyes...
A nice slice of urban ephemera.

I love the Lower Haight and the Wiggles, for so many reasons!
