    Are the times correct here in the blog post? This seems to be a mix of old and new information. It says 2022 is at position #35, but later in the post it refers to position #64. The historical starts seem to refer to a different, earlier parade start time. The information isn’t very clear.

    Hi Curtis, The event edit here is not working currently, so we’re stuck a bit. (Thanks – Tom @ Bike Blog knows).
    Yes, the times listed are not for 2022 at #35, but 2019 as #64.

    Here’s the 2022 schedule:
    8AM to 10AM – Our quick paint up (JUST 2 HOURS)

    10:15 AM – Clean up, pack up, and depart for Capitol Hill Tour
    – incl. 2 photo ops – Black Sun (Volunteer Park) and Volcano Fountain (Cal Anderson Park)

    If you’re joining the ride after the painting party, there are two opportunities, do NOT be late:
    #1 10:15 AM McGilvra Place – the park at 15th Ave btw Pike and Madison
    #2 11:15 AM Staging on 4th Ave – east side mid-block south of University St

    ** Parade starts at 11 AM ** COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination REQUIRED (or negative PCR test within 48 hours) — have proof with you on 4th Ave – Spot Checking Alert **
