Mini Bike Winter is Zoobomb’s answer to all of Portland’s summer bicycle fun — but less of it, and on small bikes.
The festivities go on for several days, and after missing the glorious Hamster Ball on Saturday night I determined to head out on Sunday to catch some of the action. I arrived at the Esplanade just in time to catch the Bicycle Belles, Seattle’s answer to our own Sprockettes. I took some photos:

Portland’s Team Zoobomb will vie for the crown of fastest gravity bikers in the world at this weekend’s Maryhill Festival of Speed. The event takes place on legendary Maryhill Loops Road in Goldendale, Washington and it’s the official International Gravity Sports Association (IGSA) World Championships.
After spending the last few days applying layers of duct tape to their racing leathers and ordering parts for their bikes, Team Zoobomb members Chuck Bridge, Aaron Truman, and Gabriel Tiller are already taking practice runs on the course. And, because of an outpouring of community support, they can focus solely on the task at hand.

Three Portland men who honed their downhill biking skills while “Zoobombing” down the West Hills are taking their sport to the next level.
Team Zoobomb — which consists of Chuck Bridge, Aaron Truman, and Gabriel Tiller — are set to go up against the world’s best “gravity-bikers” at the 2008 Maryhill Festival of Speed held in Goldendale Washington at the end of August. The event will be the World Championships of gravity sports (earning it a live broadcast on ABC Sports).

Race Organizer Kris Schamp said he wanted them to come out because he’s always envisioned the event as a “different type of race”.
“It’s not just for the full lycra and carbon racer crowd, the short track course is really a blast for anyone,” he says, “…it just seemed a natural to get the Zoobomb crowd out there to give it a shot and at the same time blend in another component of Portland’s unique bike culture.”

For some reason, I just can’t get last weekend’s Mini Bike Winter event out of my mind. By all accounts, it was just a massively fun and amazing weekend.
I took somewhere in the realm of 2,000+ images in two days and I’m still having fun looking through them. I especially like looking at photos of all the interesting people that were involved with the event. On that note, I’ve put together a little slideshow with some of the portraits I snapped.
