Here’s some more inspiration from Portland’s Pedal Palooza. Last year we had 80 events. Can we break it this year? So far 10 events have been submitted and it’s June 13th. BikeFest starts in about two months. Get the best dates by getting your events in now.
I have been kicking around the idea of doing a bike/swim/bike along the Allegheny, getting in near Millvale — I have a place in mind, but I have only swam past it, I need to figure out how to ride to it.
However this ride stands a good chance of being cancelled if it rains either the day before or the day of, due to river conditions.
How big of a problem is that? Should I plan a “rain date” or just scrap it if it’s a no-go? Or is it best not to try for something with such an uncertain probability of success?
cool, I just need some good weather to scout this plan out and then I will submit. I need to be able to walk into the river @ where I am thinking to launch the group to make sure the riverbed isn’t covered in broken bottles and crap. Hopefully we will get a break from this rain soon.
^ A light up, night ride would be great. If someone does lead this, I’ll likely join in. I’m torn on the timing – after the party could be great fun, but more dangerous considering the typical condition of post-party riders.
I am really excited about Bikefest, as always! It is such a wonderful collection of informative and enjoyable events.
I just wanted to share one aspect of it that I find highly useful: the Google Calendar feed listing all the events, available at http://bikepgh.org/campaigns/bikefest/ . I’ve imported it into my own calendar page, so I can easily see when the events are and easily copy them over to my personal calendar and not miss anything.
