Ride Report
The theme for this ride was “handmade tortillas” — only joints with handmade fresh tortillas were on the ride.

Twenty-plus riders showed up at Los Gorditos’ relatively new brick-and-mortar location at SE 12th and Division. The big news there is Apex bar next door, with awesome bike parking and helmet and bag cubbies: brilliant! Great bike accommodation.

From there we sped to El Gallo (with some advance riders keeping them open) to try to make the 7pm close. Everyone eventually made it by about 7:10, but he stayed open for us, yay!

Then the tiny cart at SE 82nd and Flavel, Taqueria de Todo Poco, super awesome tortillas made as we waited. The pastor is the hot ticket there!

Final stop, Lindo Michoacan, where I love the birria (de chivo — goat!) but also the cabeza (beef cheeks, not brains or head cheese as you might guess).

Photos are on my camera, d’oh! But maybe I can post one in the comments or something. Thanks to all for coming, and just wait for the next one

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
