Pedalpalooza Daily – 6/13

[Pedalpalooza runs from 6/8 – 6/24 and is organized by Shift to Bikes. View the full schedule here and get the latest ride reports here.]

Just a quick reminder: it’s important to pace yourself with all these events! At last night’s Donut Ride I talked to two hardcore event-goers that were already showing signs of Pedalpalooza fatigue.

Here is a list of today’s rides:

3001 – A BIKE PARKING ODYSSEY (Vancouver)
1300 Franklin St., Vancouver WA (Look for signs at the Clark County plaza.)
Noon
A bike commuter event for novice and skilled bike commuters for Vancouver and the North Portland region. Check out new electronic on-demand bike locker technologies (www.bikelink.org and www.huntco.com) – a first in the Northwest. Hands on skills for bike commuters: fill a pannier, load a bike on a bus rack, fix a flat contest, reserve a bike locker on-line, lock a bike, etc.
