Pedalpalooza Ride Recap: Cycle for Sisters

Reporter: Erinne Goodell
Date: June 16, 2011
How many people showed up? – 20+

Over 20 folks showed up to support and learn more about Sisters Of The Road! We noshed on Sisters’ famous cornbread before heading out (yum!), and happily braved rush hour traffic to our many stops. We saw the former site of Boxcar Bertha’s coffeehouse, Burnside Projects and sites of anti-camping demonstrations, and folks learned about how Sisters’ partnership with B-Line has dramatically improved the quality of meals served in Sisters’ Cafe.

Two highlights of the ride:
Meghan S shared all about the new Bud Clark Commons (homeless access center);
The ride ended at Street Roots, where two of the Radical Cheerleaders shared a fun cheer against the Sidewalk Management Ordinance (formerly Sit/Lie). It was a perfect end to the ride!
