By all accounts, last night's Mercury Pedalpalooza kick-off party was a goddamn kick in the pants (which is to say, "funnnnnn")—and there's more fun to come! For example:
Tonight! Run-DMC vs. Beastie Boys Ride! Get out your flyest Adidas tracksuit (velvet preferable) and polish up your shell-toes. This one's gonna bump.
Saturday 8: World Naked Bike Ride! (Maybe consider a seat cover?)
Thursday 13: Kids Pedal Free Ride! Move over, fixies! Portland's young'uns ride without pedals! (For example, Skoots!) Led by the Merc's own Scrappers!
Thursday 20: Bud Clark's Expose Yourself to Art Ride! Former mayor leads a tour of PDX public art. Not sure if it's nude or not!
Saturday 22: Things Portland Didn't Build Ride! Portland, you dream big! Here's a tour of places and things that should've (or maybe not) been built.
NOW! Pics from last night's super duper fun Pedalpalooza Kick-Off Party! (Hat tips to swell photog Emily Leong for sharing the action!)
More after the jump!
