Spots still available for Sunday’s Palm Tree Ride!

Ah, the annual middle-of winter tradition returns for its seventeenth year! Yes, I have been doing it since 2005, only skipping 2016 when I thought I was “burnt out” from it and 2021 for obvious reasons.

The premise, as always, is the same: An approximately10 mile casual bicycle ride (not a loop) explorin’ the palm trees around town. I also throw in some other exotics and evergreens, like eucalypts, madronas, yuccas, Oregon myrtles, and such. These trees and shrubs keep the city green through our grey and cool winter months, when all the deciduous trees have dropped their leaves. Seeing a bunch of them in the middle of winter brightens the mood, and reminds us that winter here may not be as bad as we feel.

Come join me this Sunday January 23rd at 11 am for the Palm Tree Ride. Registration is required and ride capped at 20 people. You’ll get start location details after registration. (It’ll be in inner-inner SE)

Register here.

  1. Aw, I am very sad that this is actually on a Sunday, which is actually a weekend day for me usually, but this particular Sunday I have a work thing right in the middle of the day. I hope you all have so much fun, though! Hug some trees for me! (Or, yknow, hug the trees in spirit, if actually hugging them in people’s yards would be weird;)
