Pedalpalooza is here again in Portland. It’s basically a 3 week long festival of group bike rides. I think there are over 250 lined up this year. I’m not really one for group rides, especially themed ones (a vasectomy ride? Really???) Or ones that consist of thousands of naked people….. But the Midnite mystery ride is usually pretty fun, and actually happens once a month. Everyone meets at a secret spot that is only listed online an hour or two before the ride leaves. Someone is in charge of leading the ride and picking the destination, and no one else knows where that is until we get there (hence the mystery). I had to really convince myself to go to this because I didn’t really feel like going out. (Please bear with my crappy camera)

I know these dudes though, Peter (L) from my bike team and Eric (R), my roommate. BTW Eric is totally drinking whiskey from a Trader Joe’s Gyoza dipping sauce jar. I guess it should be expected from someone who brings an Absolut vodka bottle to class to drink water from.
