Pretty Dress Success

Why is she smiling?
-because she’s riding on a splendid spring day?
-because 35 of her friends are riding with her?
-because the two men next to her are wearing dresses?
-because her Pretty Dress Ride was a huge success!
Answer: All of the above!

We all had a great time on the Pretty Dress Ride yesterday…welcoming spring with a fun ride from Union Station down to Sellwood via the Eastbank Esplanade and Springwater Corridor trail. We stopped in Sellwood Park for ice cold Lemonade and then hung out at Grand Central Bakery and the Ugly Mug before heading north. If you’d like to join us on future rides, just keep your eye on this calendar and we’ll see you out on the streets!

I never thought I’d say this, but I felt totally out of place in shorts. I have to admit I was the only guy on the ride not in a dress…so I guess it’s only fitting that karma caught up to me in the form of a flat tire. Usually a flat is no big deal…but to make a long story short, I had a great time on the bus with Juli and Eleni and I got to use the very nifty bus bike racks for the first time.

I hope you enjoyed the great weekend weather. Please forgive me but I can’t resist sharing this photo of Eleni in Sellwood Park.
