Palm Tree Ride

January 22 at 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Ah, the annual middle-of winter tradition returns for its seventeenth year! Yes, I have been doing it since 2005, only skipping 2016 when I thought I was “burnt out” from it and 2021 for obvious reasons.

The premise, as always, is the same: An approximately10 mile casual bicycle ride (not a loop) explorin’ the palm trees around town. I also throw in some other exotics and evergreens, like eucalypts, madronas, yuccas, Oregon myrtles, and such. These trees and shrubs keep the city green through our grey and cool winter months, when all the deciduous trees have dropped their leaves. Seeing a bunch of them in the middle of winter brightens the mood, and reminds us that winter here may not be as bad as we feel.

After the ride ends there will be an option for interested folks to get food and libations.

Ride start location TBA. After you register you will get more info. For planning purposes, start location will be in inner SE/NE.

Limited to 24 participants. Due to the limited amount of slots available, please only register for yourself (do not register for a “plus one” or the like) and do not bring folks who have not registered. If you would like someone else to join you, please have them register for the ride themselves.

Ride will happen in good weather or a bit of rain. Heavy rain or wintry conditions can postpone this event, I’ll announce any changes within 24 hours of the start time.
