Palo Alto event Saturday 2/16

Update: I'm changing this from an announcement to a short recap.

Unwheldy was part of the pre-prologue-of-Amgen Tour of California events in Palo Alto on 2/16. I brought it to Mitchell Park a bit before 9:30, let lots of people ride around. Sometime after 10, everyone left... leaving us and the buscycle behind. We decided to stick with the buscycle, with only a few people rotating around, and got to downtown a bit before noon, after many of the morning riders had gone home. But none the less, lots more people got to ride around the parking lot for an hour or so, then we (Rich Willits, his son, and me) rode back to Mitchell Park where a bunch more people got to ride.

I'm sure hundreds of pictures were taken today, but none by me. If you have some, leave a note in the comments!


As part of the events surrounding the Amgen Tour of California, Unwheeldy will be participating in the Palo Alto Community Bike Ride along with the Buscycle and some other fun vehicles.

From the event calendar:
February 16 - Community Bike Ride from Mitchell Park to Downtown Palo Alto
  • 9:30 AM, Mitchell Park Bowl, 3800 Middlefield Rd., Palo Alto, CA [Note: I'm quite sure it won't leave right on time.]
  • Join Council Members and other Palo Altans on this fun ride! Ride down East Meadow to Bryant Street (the Ellen Fletcher Bike Boulevard). Ride ends at Lytton Plaza in downtown Palo Alto. Ride the entire route OR join in anywhere along the route!
