Yesterday’s Tour de Taco ride was off to a great start – we talked with a few riders before they took off.
Brandi brought her pup along on the bike leash (how cool!) When everyone was getting turned around and lined up for take-off, the dog was barking like “let’s get going already! What’s the hold up! We’re ready!” Ha!
Norma’s everyday road bike was incapacitated so she rode her racing bike with toe clip shoes – and a hot little pink skirt! She’s ridden the Hotter Than Hell ride the past 3 years, and bought 3 cool old road bikes on craigslist in the last month!
Karen was really feeling the lime green! She fell in love with this bike at “Bamboo” so when she saw one for sale on Craigslist she couldn’t resist. Living in Deep Ellum she gets to ride it around a lot.
Meredith borrowed the bike and helmet from her neighbor so she could join her friends on the ride. So glad you could make it, Meredith! I hope we get to meet the owner some day – anyone with streamers and a matching helmet has some seriously playful style.
Two commuters even brought their decked-out folding bikes!!
Joe rides hundreds of miles a year. All ages of cyclists came out for the ride – and all riding levels too. (Except the real young’ens I guess. There was one young man with his dad on a sweet tandem-with-kids-bike-attachment. Hope to see them next time and snap a photo.)
