the ride across borders ride was good - we didn't ride to the border. at our pace it would have taken a month. :-) the number of bikes seemed smaller this year and the ride was short and death march slow. we rode up to 6th st. to a party. the DJ was great. nice latin? south american? brazilian? i dunno vibe. nice. there weren't as many cargo bikes. and no tall bikes. no chopper bikes. sadness. but it was a good little ride into town. we saw whit out pedicabbing and making his mad tips. nick # 3 (i've lost count) led out a bunch for a longer ride once we got to the party. but i missed that boat. i had been drinking since 3:30 -- so decided to pack it in.
i put hokey spokes
on the xtracycle front wheel. it was mesmerizing.
here's come pics from the ride.
