Hott Sock II : Return of the Crew

Ride Report

Forty-ish bikey folk met at Vera Katz (who, without our help, was dressed for the occasion – sparkly rainbow socks and a note of greeting for our ride leaders) and pedaled in high fashion down the Esplanade to Sock Dreams in Sellwood. After a socky variation on bike polo and complimentary beers (thanks, Sock Dreams crew!), we (w)heeled our way over to the secret location of the Sock It To Me Warehouse. More silly sockery ensued, including a hilarious team relay, a sock-designing contest, and darts — all ending in prizes (from potato guns to socks!). Fueled by Hopworks beer and various snack foods (thank you, Sock It to Me!), we cast off to catch up with Bowie vs. Prince ride. Ride participants declared this a sockcessful bit of bike fun.
