Le Tour de Milk Crate, 2011: Stage 9

OK, we need to pause from our regular coverage for a minute, because I need to show you something. I almost feel like I’ve been played. Say you were going to leave a trap for, I don’t know — Pooh Bear, maybe. You might leave a pot of honey out on one of his regular routes.

Say you were going to set a trap for Eugene Bicyclist. What would you do? You might leave an outrageous crate bike parked outside Full City Coffee. A cratie, let’s say, that has been lovingly upholstered in fine leather.

(DISCLAIMER: It should go without saying that all of the photos we present here in our coverage of Le Tour de Milk Crate are actual candid photos of actual innocent bystanders spotted in Eugene. No dramatizations or setups have been used, heavens no.)

Catch up on all of this year’s nonsense.

  1. So, this has nothing to do with the Tour but what better place to comment since I cannot locate the post in question. The Amazon path repair near Garfield is fully underway with big repair toys on location. One has to take a little longer detour than usual but it is fun to watch the action.
