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?!

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
