Friends + Bikes + Crazy Costumes + an easy 18-miles of city riding = A good time1,500 riders + 2 port-a-potties per rest stop = biggest accomplishment of the day: going to the restroom
Supposedly, Sunday is the day that has the worst weather history in Portland. Fortunately for us, it was a pleasant morning–mild temperatures and just a brief drizzle of rain.
After the ride, they serve over a 100 gallons of soup (no, we didn’t eat ALL of it ourselves). So we sat down and had a hearty lunch. Then it was time to haul our booties back on to our bikes to head home. Only then did it really start to rain.
Rain + Full Bellies + Cold Muscles + Bike Butt + 4 miles up hill = Agony
