You're all on the same team, right?

Update: Here are two links to pics and video of the bike thing.

Lise, Nixon, Hope and I were walking around the Capital Mall trying to see if we could spot the bikes meeting up, but instead we saw a huge group of young people in turquoise tees breaking up into smaller groups according to kerchief color.
As we began following a path, we could hear someone beckoning and running up behind us.  Both of us turned around to see one of the smaller turquoise shirted groups gaining on us with a piece of paper in one of their outstretched hands.
"we're on this scavenger hunt and well, we need someone who's walking a dog to initial our paper. thank you!"
Turns out they were from Corban College, but they were in too big of a hurry to tell us if it was (my guess) an entering freshman activity.
Lise and I lost count of how many other papers we initialed, but the best part was when we watched the students dance on the capitol steps.  Too bad I didn't get the video camera out in time!

Did the Bicycle Music Festival ever happen? A friend of mine was waiting down the street near Venti's.

I've been watching the usual suspects on facebook, but haven't seen much. Leslie Venti has been talking about the derby art going up in places around town--can't wait to see that tomorrow night!

Breakfast on Bikes didn't find the music fest, either! We were pretty bummed. The State Fair Bike Parade, on the other hand, was pretty fun!

N and I arrived at the fair in time to see some of the bicyclists riding near the front gate. I didn't know they made some bikes so tiny! Pretty cute!
