This weekend is shaping up to be something else. Taking the train down with Kav to Portland, racking up with friends Jen and boyfriend Matt. Hanging with Dean and Michelle and Andy, maybe ride with Eric and Kori, meeting Cass and co for drinks and strippers…
And Pedalpalooza itself?
3 ENTIRE weeks of bikey goodness in Portland. Over 200 different events! Holy crap, I had no idea. I was just going down with my friend Kav because it seemed like a good time. Didn’t realize what I’m getting myself into. That silly little nekked ride doesn’t even begin to touch this thing.
What follows is my semi-not-very-serious proposed schedule. I’m sorta bummed I’m going to miss the Bike Porn 2 movie – AGAIN. And in order to do the strip club crawl AKA the Raunchy Ride II, I’d have to show up NEXT weekend. I can only go this weekend. All other weekends are totally slammed.
Dammit. This whole thing looks like a lot of fun.
June 12 – June 28, 2008
Pedalpalooza is 2+ weeks of bikey fun. With 212 events, most organized by individuals, bikers of all persuasions are likely to find many events of interest. Nearly all events are free.

So much to do. So little time. And today I actually got press credentials for the whole thing (thank you Mehgan) as a correspondent for sweetbike.org!I feel bad I’m only able to come up for the one weekend.
All I can do this year is go down, have fun, ride bikes, and see what happens and take a lot of pictures I guess. Next year: plan better.
