Default 2/4 Wanderlust Menís Cycling Event

Q-LAND/MenSpirit, a non-profit men's wellness network, invites you & your friends to the next . . .

WANDERLUST: MEN'S CYCLING RIDEABOUT
Monday, 2/4, 6:30 pm (1st & 3rd Mondays)
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 or silly, and that whoosh of being free AND connected as men on the move together. This experience of riding together in the dark of 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 playing or hunting together in the wild. Perhaps its just good old fashioned freedom. Donít worry, itís not too daunting Ė we stop for dinner along the way for good food, good cheer, and to get warm & dry.

WHO: Facilitated by Jonathan Carpenter, who is an artist, carpenter and 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 warm, waterproof, & bright, and of course bring your helmet, bike lights for the front & back of your bike, some water, and raingear if the weather is inclement.

DIVERSITY: We love riding with adult men of all ages, sizes, shapes, colors, orientations, experience levels, and backgrounds (including trans guys). Thanks for helping us increase the diversity of men who get invited to this event by forwarding this to any friends/colleagues who might be interested.

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, 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 503-2230-8822 X1 to schedule this BEFORE the event you've registered to attend.

INFO: John at 503-223-8822 X1 or events@qland.org
