We meet at Col. Summers Park at about 5am on trash day. Everyone's got old child trailers hooked up to their bikes. We fan out across the neighborhood, collecting cans and bottles from the recycling bins, finally meeting up at Safeway. We cash in our haul and buy cans of Steel Reserve or Mickey's or Joose. The ride ends under the Burnside Bridge, where we'll have a dance party. And by dance party I mean pass out drunk and shit our pants.
