Here’s your bike-fun filled Weekend Guide:
Saturday Fast Friday
An event including sprints, footdown, sharks and minnows, tricks, a group ride, and more. Check out PDXFixed.com for more.
4:30pm at NW 13th and Quimby
Sellwood Bridge March
A march led by residents of the Sellwood-Moreland neighborhood to bring awareness to how the Sellwood Bridge Project impacts community livability. See more info here.
9:30am at Sellwood Community Center (corner of SE Spokane and 15th Ave.)
See St. Johns Ride
This ride is being led by Portland’s newest riding group, the Easy Riders. The route (map here) is a 22-mile “leisurely” loop that will go from the Eastbank Esplanade to St. Johns for some “sightseein’ and gabbin'”. The Easy Riders are like the old Slug Velo (now defunct), but with more of an edge. From their ride description they say, “Kids are welcome…but keep in mind, after the ride at beer time we might get rowdy and curse a lot.”
Meet at 10:45 at the Vera Katz statue on the east side of the Esplanade near the Hawthorne Bridge
Bike Polo (every Sunday)
It’s a Portland tradition. Bring your own beater bike (or ride one of their loaners) and learn bike polo from the Axles of Evil (some of the best polo players on the continent). Polo is also great for spectators, but be mindful of random profanity and other transgressions.
2:30pm 4:30 – 10:30pm at Alberta Park (NE 21st and Killingsworth)
Zoobomb (every Sunday)
Needs no introduction. Everyone welcome (mini bikes or not) See Zoobomb.net for more info.
9:00pm at the Zoobomb Pyle! (SW 10th Ave and Oak St)
Have fun out there…and if I forgot anything please feel free to shameless promote in the comments.
