Pedalpalooza Daily – 6/21

Posted on June 21st, 2006 at 6:36 am.

Hey, I’m putting on a ride today! The Communified Ride (lame name I know) will be a fun, quick spin around the waterfront (with a few bridge crossings of course). It’s a social ride and the goal is to learn about the bike community, meet some new people and talk about upcoming events and/or find new recruits for whatever bikey stuff you’re up to. I will also bring my tripod and set up some black/white style portraits (think Sears) of you and your bike. Meet at 6:00 at Salmon Street Fountain…I’ll be rockin’ out with my new bike radio! (yes I just linked to an advertiser).

And sorry for getting behind on ride reports…they’re coming soon.

Here’s a list of today’s events:

    Happy Monday everyone.

    The Pedalpalooza beat goes on today with a ride I’m really looking forward to; Bike Safety for Grown Ups. It’s being led by the spirited Elicia Cardenas (you might remember her from the Bike Wedding).

    I’ve seen her in action teaching bike safety to kids and trust me, be prepared to laugh and learn tonight at 6:00 at Abernethy School!

    There’s a wide range of stuff to choose from today.

    If it’s not raining, you should check out the track racing action at Alpenrose Velodrome in the Southwest Hills. It’s a beautiful ride out there and you’re guaranteed some thrills at the track. And how ’bout a Minibike Steeplechase later tonight? If Gabriel Amadeus is behind it, you know it’ll fun!

    Vancouver (our neighbor to the North) is really coming on strong. Next Monday they’re hosting an award ceremony for their Bronze award from the League of American Bicyclists, they got some great bikey coverage yesterday in the Columbian and check out their three events today; Critical Mass, a fashion show and a bike-in movie. Yeah Vancouver!
