View Full Version : 10/1 Wanderlust: Menís Cycling Rideabout

09-25-2007, 10:29 PM
Monday, 10/1, 6:30 pm
Wild Oats, NE 15th & Fremont

When a group rides together not knowing where they're going, all these experiences unfold - things like team, flow, laughter, feeling lost, and that whoosh of being free AND connected as men on the move together. This experience of riding together in the urban jungle pulls out some experiences in our bodies and hearts that are difficult to reproduce in modern culture. Perhaps they are akin in some strange ways to the experience of hunting together, or perhaps running and playing together in the wild.

You're invited to invent our rideabout, to play with wanderlust and journeying together by bike in the city, our urban jungle.

WHO: Facilitated by Jonathan Carpenter, who is a carpenter and a lover of cycling (but who most assuredly is not an expert on cycling, wanderlust, or riding about).

WEAR: So we'll be visible, consider wearing something bright & loud, and of course bring your helmet, bike lights for the front & back of your bike, some water, and raingear if the weather is inclement.

WHAT: can you do to invite men who might be interested in this rideabout experiment?

CO-SPONSORS: We request a donation of time (1-2 hours) &/or money ($5-$25) to support MenSpirit, a joint project of three non-profit organizations, Q-LAND, LoveTribe, & Spirit Hawk, that empowers diverse men in the Portland, OR area to discover and manifest their individual & collective potential for wellness, community, friendship/intimacy, spirituality, & play. If you want to donate time, we request you call Bart at 503-223-8822 X1 to schedule this BEFORE the event you've registered to attend.
