Ride Synopsis:
From Bikehenge we pedaled south on 18th, under Hwy 26, then along the mixed-use trail that runs along the Sunset through town. At 12th street we turned North, took a lane and had a fast downhill coast to Whole Foods. The foodless contingent stocked up on chicken salad, vino, noodle salad, more vino, crusty bread, and yet more vino.

From Whole Foods we wound our way through the Pearl district taking some ped path short-cuts, crossed the Broadway Bridge, and stopped at the grassy knoll opposite the Rose Garden parking lot. A few intrepid souls entertained themselves climbing the stockade and rock pile. Good times and hearty picnicing ensued. Thanks to everyone that made it out.
