Pedalpalooza 2007 – The Naked Ride

Ok, so last night I didn’t do much, well, watched Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions. I think I have only seen them once, where the first Matrix I have seen like 1000 times. Around 12:10 AM, I start hearing screams and hollers and honking and craziness outside my window. I had the blinds closed, so I open them up, and what do I see?

700 people on bikes. Naked.

I would have taken a picture but I don’t want my blog to be XXX rated, so just imagine it.

What it is, is Pedalpalooza. Well, the naked ride is just part of the week long event. Pretty crazy though, the people were coming by for like 45 minutes to an hour, just screaming.

From the FAQ: Isn’t this illegal? The city of Portland wishes it was. See The Law.

One week in Portland and I am already seeing crazy things, who woulda thought? Maybe I would have joined them, if my bike wouldn’t have gotten jacked like 4 years ago from my garage (well, I probably still wouldn’t join them, maybe though :))

So many jokes, so little time. Here’s an image for you… the same event with a bunch of Stearns County folk.


according to the local news ‘dozens’ of cyclists showed up

a report from the u.k. ‘scores’

try hundreds or thousands!

*%%** mainstream media! oh well
