We missed the Sunday night activities, but we made it to both the Scavenger Hunt and the Bike Parade this year. The Scavenger Hunt was an absolute blast on the tandem. I was left to navigate and break traffic rules using my map geek radar to navigate from place to place while Shelly on the back of the tandem did her best to solve riddles, document our finds and point out near collisions all while remaining on board. Needless to say we do not have any photos. We finished well, in the top twenty I believe and we would have done far better if only we could have remembered that the Record Exchange was in the Hitchcock Building. This is a fact we can now not forget if we wanted (now what is the combination to my bike lock again?).

We did get a few photos of the bike parade which keeps getting bigger and bigger each year. I hear a change of venue is necessary to accompany the growing tribe in 2009.
It was one of those weekends where way too much is going on it town, and you feel like you're on vacation in your own city with no time to see all the sites. The Green Expo was downtown and my friend Brian graduated from BSU and threw a fun party at his pad that evening. We were like kids at the fair running from one ride to another all weekend.
