Worst Day of the Year Ride

Every year, the local Portland brewery Lucky Labrador hosts several fun bike ride events. I had the opportunity to be a part of this year's Worst Day of the Year Ride, held last Sunday. It was so much fun! At least 4000 people showed up and participated. There were two different routes; my friend M and I chose the 18-mile Urban Route (instead of the 45-mile Challenge Route). There were plenty of rest stops along the way, so we could replenish our calories and energy.

M and I dressed up in all blue and put clouds all over our bikes. There were people dressed up more than we, but that's all we did with our last-minute planning.

Our friend K made this "cloud", but since it didn't really look like a cloud, I felt the need to label it.
At the end, we were given free soup from Laughing Planet and we had the choice to buy beer, if we wanted.

It was mostly cloudy the entire time, with a little bit of sun here and there, and I only felt a raindrop once. I can't wait to do it again next year.

One of the rest stops; note, the pig!
