Rides and reports – Pedalpalooza Day 4

Pedalpalooza '07 - Kickoff Parade
World Naked Bike Ride 2007

(File photos)

Pedalpalooza is in full swing. We’ve already ridden naked, explored obscure bikeways, and jousted to our hearts content.

So far I haven’t been able to attend as many rides as I’d like (that will change in a few days!), so I’ve been trying to figure out a way for everyone to share their experiences and ride reports from the action. Below are all the rides on tap for today. If you’re able to attend one (or several) of them, please share your reports and links to photos in the comments section.

I’ll still write separate reports and share photos from the rides I attend, but I’d like to make this a daily post throughout Pedalpalooza (it ends on 6/23).

Here are the rides happening today…have fun!

Ride Report – Midnight Mystery Ride : Special Pedalpalooza Edition

RIDERS
Estimates range solidly between 300 and 450 (no kidding)

HIGHLIGHTS
A great location where we could spread out, excellent crowd of superfuckingawesome people, plenty of beer to go around.

MOST MAJESTIC MOMENT
When riders from the sidewalk path converged with riders who took the street and we all merged together to form a sea of bikes.

Circling in Ladds, why is it always so fun to ride continuously around a circle on bikes as a huge group. We don\’t know, but it sure is.

SPECIAL THANKS
Philly!!! The Rev himself. Way to choose an excellent location free of the police presence that has been plaguing us of late.

IT\’S OFFICIAL
MMR is here to stay. Go make a sticker.

A map of the route will be available soon.
