It's been a long, quiet week here at BikePortland HQ, as Jonathan and I have both been out of town -- he's in DC working like a madman to cover the National Bike Summit, and until yesterday I was down south at the smaller and scrappier but no less inspiring L.A. Bike Summit (more on that soon).
There's not much time to round up the weekend's events, but here are a few ideas that look good -- please feel free to add your own suggestions, reports, and more in the comments.
- Sleep not your thing? Tonight is the infamous Midnight Mystery Ride, Hootenanny edition. Help Rev Phil celebrate freedom, bikes, and getting older without forgetting how to have fun. Bring musical instruments and copies of the lyrics to your favorite songs for everyone to sing to. Meet at 11:00pm. Starting location is up now at the MMR website.
- The Pi(e) Ride (on Saturday, 3/14 of course) is a classic Shift-y offering, including food and silly mathematical references. It leaves at noon from the Bipartisan Cafe at 7901 SE Stark, and the distance will be approximately 9.42 miles.
- The Easy Riders, always up for a mellow good time, have a SoPo Ride coming up on Sunday. It leaves at 10:30am from the Stumptown on Division and 45th and explores the flatter areas south and east of there at an easy pace, ending at a bar. Exciting destinations include the Fubonn Asian mall, the Portland Mausoleum, Keana's Candyland, and Reed College.
Ride hard, ride safe, and have fun out there.Email This Post Possibly related posts
