What happens when you get a bunch of bike nerds to clean up for a swanky party? Turns out, they clean up good! San Francisco Bicycle Coalition's Winterfest, an annual fundraiser for the non-profit, is kinda like Bike Prom for local bike advocates. It's the same people you see all the time, except dressed to impress.
As a regular dress-to-impresser, I get a thrill seeing my bike buddies trade the hi-viz for some high(er) fashion. So I rented a fancy flash for my DSLR and did my best Bill Cunningham impression.

These are a few of my favorite moments from Winterfest, but I didn't have space for all of them. Check out the rest of my party pics on the Bike Pretty Facebook page.

The dancefloor was totally cray. Bike nerds know how to shake it.

Winterfest Volunteers John Collins and Kristin Polock. Too. Effing. Adorable. I'm dying for her peacock and rose print frock.
