bike parade (tour de fat boise 2009)

i think this year had the best costumes ever. it seemed like a higher turnout too.

i decided not to go on the bike parade. i got to the park just as it was starting, and my knee was mysteriously hurting and i wasn't in costume, so i just stood around and took pictures. i'm glad because i got a ton of great ones.








^these guys...serious dedication to the cause. i could never ride in a costume like that. especially on a bike with such small, low handlebars. a cruiser would have been much more practical.


































^The Gnome was wearing his slow ride champion belt from two years ago.













i don't know who this person is supposed to be, but it's another example of great dedication. i saw her later and she was sweating so much, but her makeup still looked perfect. she was interviewed on the news too.

The person in blue is a Blue Meany from the Beatles movie Yellow Submarine - a really good costume! You also got great pictures of my friends Merin and Brandon, she's in the fox mask. I'm sending them the link, they'll love it.

It is I! The Blue Meanie! Uh, you should know, that when I typed in Tour de Fat Blue Meanie in google, yours is the first link, cool huh.

Heh, I looked because, well, Tour de Fat 2010 was today, and I wanted to be all conceited and try and find myself. Anyway, you take great pictures, good job!
