Pedalpalooza Daily – 6/22

Posted by on June 22nd, 2006 at 1:38 am

[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.]

Two especially awesome rides today. First the Bike Kiss-in! Check out last year’s report…it’s just what it sounds like! And you should definitely check out the Transportation Geeks Ride. Back after its success last year, it’s being led again by the smart and fun Elicia Cardenas and TriMet’s bike guy Kiran Limaye. They’ll teach you all the wonky transportation stuff you never wanted to know ;-)!

Here’s the full line-up for today:

BIKE KISS IN

SE 20th and Belmont (Col. Summers Park)
4:30pm
It’s true that everybody smiles on a bike, so lets make ourselves happier by kissing with those lips and making the solo drivers a bit jealous. We will ride to the most attractive spot and get this kiss in on for the homebound commuters. Everyone needs to bring your own kissing partner. Don’t forget your signs. Mints provided.
