We spent the afternoon at the Alpenrose Dairy watching the kick-off to the 2009 Cross Crusade cyclocross series. We were there last year as well.

It was so Portland; coffee, bikes, dogs and kids.

Oh and tattoos. There were lots of tattoos.

And cowbells.

I love the scene - the energy and the vibe. It's why I love Portland so much. Thousands of people show up to cheer on a muddy bike race.

I read that it was the biggest cyclocross race in the U.S., with over 1500 racers (and probably 3000+ spectators).
