ANARCHIC AND CAPED: Clickety Clack columnist Rachel Hoyt (second from left) is as creative in life as she is poetic in her observations of current trends online. The cofounder of Los Caped Barbarinos, a Santa Barbara group that scooters around wearing capes to spread silliness and smiles, she helped organize a rally and fundraiser earlier this month. With the help of Daniel Dreifuss (Scooters of Anarchy, Santa Maria) and several enthusiastic scooterists, the event drew people from as far away as Huntington Beach and San Luis Obispo and raised more than $500 for CASA of Santa Barbara County. Nineteen riders toured the Riviera, Montecito, Mission Canyon, and the Mesa one Saturday morning to kick off the event. Twelve riders on the final ride posed for this photo outside Hope Ranch before meandering to Goleta for the final festivities.
