Food Cart Lovers Ride - Friday June 24

June 22, 2011

Ever wanted to get on your bike with fellow food cart lovers and wander the city visiting cart after cart after cart nibbling as you go? Well, now you can. A local bicyclist and food cart fan has put together the Food Cart Lovers Ride as part of Pedalpalooza
, the city's annual bike fest. Here are the details:
Schedule:
Cartopia - SW 12th and Hawthorne - meet at 4:30 for appetizers, ride at 5:15-5:30
Green Castle - NE 20th and Everett - arrive at 5:45 for snacks, light treats, leave at 6:30 - Food Carts Portland will be there with goodies
Good Food Here - SE 43rd and Belmont - arrive at 6:45 for main meal, leave at 7:45
Ala Carts - SE 50th and Ivon (off Division) arrive at 8:00 for either main meal, aperitif, leave at 8:45 to 9:00
D Street Noshery - SE 32nd and Division - arrive at 9:00 for desserts/beer, Official End of Ride but if there is interest we may go back to Cartopia or head Downtown
 

Overall, the entire official ride is about 7 miles - here is a GPS of the route

Doesn't it sound fun? I understand the organizers have coordinated with the pods so the carts will be open into the evening and night. Grab your bike, your helmet, attach a light and bring cash. This will be a fun and filling ride.
