PIZZA NOSTALGIA RIDE
Wallace Park, NW 25th & Raleigh, by Chapman School
6:15pm
Portland may seem like a pizza wasteland, but never fear, there are bastions of thin, run-down-your-chin pies to be found. We'll eat and ride as long as we're able, calling ahead to order cheese pizzas cut into squares (as they were meant to be) so that everyone can eat as much or as little as they like.

This tour is heavily biased toward the thin-crusted East Coast tradition, New Haven style in particular. California gourmands and die-hard Chicagoans are welcome but requested to keep heckling to a minimum.

Bring cash for pizza (cost will depend on number of riders, but will probably be a dollar or two per person per pizza place). RSVP if you can to:
