The annual ‘Dropout Prom’ drew a great-looking crowd Friday night. The theme was Cosmic Space Invaders and judging from the images captured by our Pedalpalooza embed Eric Thornburg, you all nailed it!

We hope you’ve been enjoying Pedalpalooza. From the looks of streets and social media it seems like the rides and events are going very well.
To keep you inspired and updated, we’ve got a few photos to share from two rides that happened on Saturday: The Cosplay Ride and the Plaid to Plaid Ride…
“Ladies, Gentlemen and everyone between! Come one, come all, come slither with Womanimal and her pet dragon! Please wear attire inspired from all things fantasy: kings, queens, orks, wizards, goblins, hobbitzes, gelflings, skeksis, unicorns, GOT, xmen and women, super heros, super villians, make it up, be your own creation! Having a story to tell will add to the allure!”
Ride leader Abbey Wan Dracoon led just over a dozen people on the inaugural edition of this ride. Our photographer Eric Thornburg said the outfits drew inspiration from the entire gamut of fantasy and relied heavily on Goodwill and Craigslist finds. What makes cosplay more fun? Getting on a bike and parading around town!

Remember how I said last week’s relative quiet was the calm before the storm? Well the storm is here. Pedalpalooza is in full swing and we’ve got a tantalizing selection of rides for you to choose from this weekend.

“Its the best ride in Japan—let me know if you end up doing it and want some company.” High praise from my boss — a taciturn triathlete with an eye for art and nature, and many years living in Japan. I figured I’d better ride the Shimanami Kaido sometime before the end of my time here.[Read more…]
