Here's your Thursday to-do list:

1) Read our awesome How-To bike issue (including how to get married, how to hunt nutria, and how to get hundreds of dollars from Greg Oden, all by bike!).

2) Put on pants.

3) Grab a bike and join the Pedalpalooza kickoff ride on the South Park Blocks at 6 PM.

4) Decide it's high time for a beer and stop by new bike shop Velo Cult, just across from the Hollywood Theater. The Mercury is hosting Pedalpalooza's official kick-off party, with tasty beer from Lompoc and music from the lovely Suicide Notes! See you there at 7PM! With pants on!
