Holiday Ale Fest
I planned to pass tandem dude at the next light and pulled up next to him. Lo and behold, it was Cosmo! The same Cosmo I was going to meet at the beer fest. We rode together to Yamhill, locked our bikes up dueling-basket style, and started a text war to find the Texan.
Last year I was cold and hungry so this year I consumed a large lunch and carried a bag full of extra layers. Once inside, I instantly regretted bringing a messenger bag as pretty much every person there knocked into it at least once.
After we enjoyed a few tastes of ridiculously potent but delicious ales, the crowd started to thin. We even took a seat for a short while, running into another Sisyphean Hill Rider and reminiscing summer cycling.
