Report: Taco Ride

[This Pedalpalooza ride report is from Ben Salzberg.]

Name of Ride: Taco Ride
Leader: Ben
Date: 6-12-2007
Start time: 18:00
Duration: 21:00
Approx. Distance: 4 miles
Number of riders: 60
Synopsis of ride:

A huge crowd of hungry taco eaters descended like locusts on all my favorite inner SE taco trucks, devouring everything in their paths. We left in waves from truck to truck, with little or no organization or leadership, driven purely by taco-craving. Many hundreds of tacos were consumed.

Stops were:
Los Gorditos, SE 50th and Division
Lindo Michoacan, SE 34th and Division
Torres de Morelos, SE 33rd and Powell
El Brasero, SE 12th and Hawthorne

A few brave souls ventured to a 5th stop, Ole Ole at NE 21st and Burnside. I led from behind once again, not even making it out of the El Brasero parking lot. Whatta Loser!

High points: Delicious tacos. Fresh tortillas at Lindo Michoacan.

Low points: Waiting for delicious tacos. And no Cabeza at Torres de Morelos.
