Burnside Bridge Slalom

Posted by on July 18th, 2007 at 10:37 am

(The Burnside Bridge is closed to motorized vehicles for the next three weeks!)

A sport that will only last for three weeks (or, perhaps, one night):

Meet at the West Burnside Bridge approach

Spectators: you are advised to bring cowbells, bullhorns, foam
fingers, flash bulbs that go POOF!
Racers: you are advised to bring pads, a helmet, and something
skintight with a number on it.
All: don’t expect hard-and-fast rules except this one: go hard and fast.

Minis, skateboards, wheelchairs, 15 lb. Orbeas, and 150 lb. dutch
bikes are all welcome.

Refreshments encouraged as long as they are (or appear to be) legal.

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

    Dham! I missed it…and I was so close to the fun in Old Town.
