Tour de Taco!!!

My friends Melanie and Reuben host the Collins Family Cycle Fest every year. This year was Tour de Taco! Awesome! Who doesn't like tacos, ice cream and bicycles. We started at Powderhorn park and biked to Liberty Frozen Custard. I had some delicious chocolate custard. Then we got on our bikes and rode to Sebastian Joe's. I wasn't sure I wanted ice cream so I got lemon sorbet. It was amazing...I love lemon! Sour...mmm. They had a flavor called "roasted garlic almond chip." I noticed the flavor and said gross who would ever order such a disgusting flavor of ice cream. Of course, the person standing next to me would order that flavor. time I will...probably do say the same thing. Sometimes I can't help myself.

The last stop was at Pineda Tacos. I was so full by the time we reached the taco place that I didn't order any tacos. They only had large combo plates so I just shared a Guava nectar with a friend and ate some of the leftovers from the other Cycle Fest riders. All in all it was a great day for cycling! The Collins family also did a great job of picking out an awesome route that utilized mainly off street bike trails.

Plus they made these awesome Collins Family Cycle Fest accessories for our bikes or you could wear it as a necklace like I did!

Oops, I don't know how to change the photo so I am not sideways.

Yeah! Next Saturday is the annual bicycle Pac-Man. Where we race around South Minneapolis playing a game of Pac-man on our bikes. There are even people dressed up as fruit.
Yep, that's me dressed as a banana!

I love summer and all the great opportunities to ride my bike with friends!!! Yeah for Minneapolis and all the awesome bicycle crazy people!
