It’s Pedalpalooza time again!

16 Jun

Hello everyone!  It’s Pedalpalooza time here in Portland and I’ve been so busy out having fun that I forgot to bring it up.  You can go to the Pedalpalooza website to see the 200+ events or grab a current issue of the Portland Mercury for a printed copy.

There are a lot of options for all skill level and I’ll be leading the big girl ride during the last week of the event.

Anyway, I’m off to have more fun.  But Portland get your butt outside and ride and if your reading from anywhere  else maybe you can do some of these kinds or rides where you live.

More about the ride.

Looks like I can add the pedalpalooza ride whenever I want.  So ladies what do you think would be better a weekend ride or a weekday ride in the evening.  I would be inclined to make it a weekday evening but It’s not for me it’s for everyone.  Maybe I could do one of each.  Hum,  I’ll chat it up tonight and see but give me some feedback ladies.  Thank you so much for encouraging me.

Oh and should this be women only or co-ed?  I was thinking keeping it all girl would add to the comfort but it seems a little mean to tell the big guys they have to get their own ride.

Just an idea.

I was thinking it could be really fun to have a chubby/fat/curvy girl ride as part of pedalpolooza.  Easy ride share tips tricks etc.  Anyway to anyone who reads this send some feed back my way.  I already proposed it I would just like to know if there is interest for a ride or some sort of workshop.

A quick note for Portland.
