Oh, the Boston hipster scene. From thrift-store clothes to a general disdain for anyone not privy to the most obscure music possible (so, have you heard the new Band of Horses album?), they weave in and out of traffic on vintage ten speeds with a scowl that says, "Hey, I'm different."
If you're anywhere between Newbury Street and the Washington Mall this weekend, you might spot more "cooler-than-thou" attitudes than usual. Cambridge Bicycles and the OtherSide Cafe, among others, are sponsoring a two-day bike race; the winner receives prizes (maybe like the one above) and a celebratory awards party at OtherSide Sunday evening.
Unfortunately this blogger didn't make the exclusive invite list. A Jacobs Bicycle spokesman (another sponsor) kindly shared with me that "we don't want to be affiliated with the Boston Globe."
