Mark Your Calendars - 10/7 ECT Bike2Dance Ride
On Sunday October 7th (10/7) Community Exchange Cycle Touring Club (ECT) will be hosting a bike ride from the Waterfront to the Village Ballroom's Sunday Dance in NE Portland.
This ride aims to connect our bicycle community with one of Portland's Dance communities. This is one of several cultural exploration rides ECT will be hosting this Fall/Winter Season. Other rides-in-planning will explore: Buddhist's temple, Islamic places of worship, First-Nations exhibits, Asian bookstores, Oregon hot springs, etc. Please stay tuned for detailed postings.
We also invite regular dance participants who do not usually ride your bikes to Dance to try it on this day.

The ride will start at Madison Plaza, arrive at the Village Ballroom before 10:30am. There is a recommended donation at the door ($7).
