Star Wars vs Star Trek Portland Bike Ride 2010

Oh joy – oh rapture! When one of my exercise-y hobbies can intersect with my love of all things nerdy, it is impossible for me and Dan (the DH) to resist.

Here is how we spent yesterday evening.

Since we’d spent most of the day moving a friend – Smalls – we didn’t end up following the entire route. Plus, Dan was pouring sweat, the mask coupled with the heat. The lekku headpiece and this only being the second bike ride of the season (plus the hottest day of the year thus far) also did me in.

It was great to see so many nerdy folks come out for two great tastes – well, three really: bike riding, star wars/trek and cosplay.

Here are some great pics that didn’t make the video:
