Pedalpalooza Daily – 6/21

[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.]

Hey, I’m putting on a ride today! The Communified Ride (lame name I know) will be a fun, quick spin around the waterfront (with a few bridge crossings of course). It’s a social ride and the goal is to learn about the bike community, meet some new people and talk about upcoming events and/or find new recruits for whatever bikey stuff you’re up to. I will also bring my tripod and set up some black/white style portraits (think Sears) of you and your bike. Meet at 6:00 at Salmon Street Fountain…I’ll be rockin’ out with my new bike radio! (yes I just linked to an advertiser).

And sorry for getting behind on ride reports…they’re coming soon.

Here’s a list of today’s events:

BIKE EXIT STRATEGY
SW Naito & SW Salmon St (Waterfront Park by the fountain)
Noon
The Boosh admin may not have an exit strategy, but you shouldn’t be without one when it comes to bike blunders. With basic techniques gleaned from the bike ninja convenant, you’ll practice the slap-outs, bail-outs, and even the Shatner roll, helpful in crashes. Mostly you’ll gain a new confidence with your bike riding. Bring loose-fitting, grubby clothes. Attendees (who survive) receive a bike ninja headband.
