In October, the Underwear Ride morphs into the Costume Ride and we ride around the city in Halloween style.
We had the incorrect time for the start and arrived 45 minutes LATE. We raced into town to see if we could catch up with the group and successfully found them after we asked some people strolling around Market Square if they'd seen 'a few hundred people on bikes in costume.'
"Yeah, they went thataway..."

|Nyan Cat, Paul in drag, Geoffrey as Shaggy and some fool|
|Elliot and ET rode in|

Marko rode with Dino on Saturday and was able to get his official, by-the-rules final trip in. We agreed that his theme was Coffeeneuring Noob.
The roads were desolate because everyone was indoors watching the Steelers. During these few hours, these are the times to ride... unmolested by angry, impatient motorists. The whole city is nearly serene, it is quiet. I like it.
Marko pointed out one of the protractors, this one on a disintegrating, fallen post in Schenley Park.
On CMU's campus, I saw these "Don't be a jerk to pedestrians" flyers attached to bikes on the racks.
