[Ready, set, Zoobomb]

This weekend Zoobombers celebrate their fourth anniversary with two days of mini-bike madness known as the BIFFday Summer Olympics.

On Saturday they’ll assemble at Colonel Summers Park (SE 20th and Belmont) at 2:00 for events like mini-bike polo, chicken races (where mini-bikers duel with someone riding on their shoulders), and the ominous-sounding Harness of Doom.

Then at noon on Sunday, at an undisclosed location (sorry), a new event dubbed “This Race is a Pipe Bomb,” is planned. Organizers are calling the event an opportunity to ride down a sewage pipe in “pitch black, stanky darkness with the albino fishies.” and, “Race down a 6′ diameter concrete tube, carve on the walls, go as fast as you can, probably get hurt!” Sounds awesome.

This event will be followed by a high-stakes Zoobomb and more craziness on the hill.

I can’t make it because I’ll be camping on the coast, so please everyone takes lots of photos for me…and watch out for ice!

[P.S. If you’d like to write-up a brief report on this event please contact me.]

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael

    Every time I read a report of the wild happenings at Zoobomb HQ, I get a tingly feeling inside. =)
