Archive for June, 2005
Just got back from the official press conference for the upcoming Livestrong Ride (25 min. ride from NoPo to OHSU..not bad huh?).
Notables in attendance where none other than Jonathan Nicholas (in a black suit no less), Phil Knight (head cheese at Nike), and Craig Nichols (Lance's doctor).
Lots of official-looking people wearing bright yellow [...]

Last Friday's Bike Kiss-In was without a doubt the best of it's kind that Portland has ever seen. It inspired mini-kiss-ins afterward at various intersections, and looks to become a nation-wide phenomenon (look for an east coast Kiss-In ride report in the future).

"Get the %^&$ out of my way"s: 6-8
I don't even know where to begin. I've done tons of great bike stuff in the last few days. And, there's some really great things on the horizon. OK, a quick recap:

...but don't fret. You can see a bunch of great photos and ride reports on the Pedalpalooza Blog.
It was truly a memorable "17 days of pure bike fun." A special thanks to all the volunteers at Shift to Bikes who make Portland the bike fun capitol of the world!
