The folks in the front of the line got here at 4:30, and now, just a few minutes before showtime, there’s still a line wrapping around the block. Adding to the buzz are warm, sunny skies.
This little corner of SE Portland (Clinton and 26th) is absolutely overrun with bikes. They’re locked to every pole and tree in sight.
Lots of folks are working the line — selling raffle tickets, passing out campaign literature and event fliers, and one guy (Daniel Johnson) is walking around with a big card for Jessica Osborne that everyone is signing (she was the victim of a hit-and-run last week).
See more photos in my photo gallery. I’ll post a slideshow at the end of the night.
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
