After the French Toast ride and the jaunt up to Vancouver and back on Saturday, I just didn't want to go home. So I looked at the Pedalpalooza calendar and sure enough there was a ride starting around the corner in 5 minutes. Bike Noir!
The Working Theater Collective put on a beautiful, bike-themed, film noir-style production. We were led to points around Portland by a trailer playing old style music, which would stop to indicate the next scene was starting. After that scene was over, sirens would sound to let the audience know it was time to "get out of dodge" and travel again. A Five Star production!
After the ride and show, WTF bikes hosted a dance party in their parking lot. Tons of fun. Learned a little bit of swing dancing from new friend, Matteo. Finally got home after 75 miles of riding in 12 hours! What a day.
