(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):
BURNSIDE BRIDGE SLALOM!
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.
