Making a point while making out.

About 10 couples gathered in downtown Portland during rush hour last night for the annual Bike Kiss-in event.

Holding signs that read, “Liplock, Not Gridlock,” and “Less Parking Space, More Sucking Face,” the idea was to get comfy with your sweetheart while making a subtle point to passersby.

The location was a statue and fountain smack dab in the middle of a busy street (SW Madison) in downtown Portland.

Is there any remaining doubt that bike riders have more fun?!
