Good luck Shadow! And don’t worry about the crowd- you’ll do fine. Seems like a remember a big bike convention they have some where out west where they have thousands gather. Something called “Burning Man”?-…… yeah- I just Google it- here’s a link- http://www.sfbike.org/?burningman
. Anyway I hear a lot of crazy things happen there- it’s like a carnival or Mardi Gras thing- people in weird costumes- people in NO costumes(clothes). A place to let your hair down and freak out and have fun.
