Just noticed this entry on the Oregonian’s Breaking News blog,
“About a dozen bicyclists blocked traffic about 9 to 9:30 this morning on inner east side commuter streets, then onto the Morrison Bridge westbound. They moved slowly across all lanes as cars backed up behind them, including a police car. This continued for the length of the bridge until the cyclists veered right toward Old Town.”
I don’t know anything about it. Someone care to share some info?
UPDATE: (11:56am) More details have been added to the story. The Oregonian reports that the police say several of cyclists have been cited (including one arrest due to an outstanding warrant). Also,
“Police did not rule out the possibility that the bicyclists were getting an early start on the May Day rally and march scheduled for this afternoon in downtown.”
