Pedapalooza 2009

We have been having a great time at this year’s Pedalpalooza. Thought I’d share our rides and some photos with you. There is still another week, including tomorrow’s North Portland edition of  Sunday Parkways (on Father’s Day, no less… in honor of me ; )

We started Pedalpalooza off with the kickoff parade, which the kids joined and loved, especially as we went through their school neighborhood and got to see their friends.

Learned the history and reasoning of Portland street names (rich white male tugboat/steamboat captains, developers, and bankers… mostly) on the Dekum to Woodstock ride.

Then saw the craziest thing in the Willamette. Pedalpalooza irony… (nice photo, though)

Don't know how I feel about "The World"... makes me a little testy.
