Zoobomb bikes get pink slipped

Posted by on October 28th, 2005 at 12:04 am

Zoobomb pile Portland ORJust heard that downtown cops have placed pink slips on the famous Zoobomb bike pile across from Rocco’s Pizza. Here’s the post from the Zoobomb forum to keep an eye on.

How can the downtown cops say those bikes are abandoned? Everyone knows about Zoobomb…they were on PBS for crying out loud! If the cops impound Zoobomb bikes I could see community relations being strained. Especially coming right after the recent debacle at the Clown House. Here’s what Zoobomb legend Rev Phil has to say:

“Alas, we dont want to give up our Holy Rack. It is perhaps the greatest icon of alternative bike culture that exists in Portland today. Truly a living piece of bike art.”

Stay tuned for more developments.

    The bikes have been impounded before. Once, a bunch of cops showed up with their own cars/trucks, cut the locks and carted all the bikes off. See the pictures on for photos. This is an outrage. We need to standup against the tyranny of the city. Bicyclists of portland unite!
