New “Voices” added


Want to bring your attention to two recent “Voices”.

Dabby has posted an announcement about the New Year’s Day Mud Bowl bike polo event.

I’ve posted a poem by Chops called “Next Time.” He performed it at BikeCraft but it was so loud I couldn’t really hear him. I ran into him later and asked him to read it again (see photo at right). This time, I had both my cameras (still and video) in hand. Chops read the poem brilliantly, with such sincere emotion and charisma that I couldn’t help but be moved by his words. I transcribed the poem from the video I took and it’s my pleasure to share his words with you.

If you’d like to add your Voice, it’s open to anyone. The only requirement is that your contribution relates to biking in Portland. It’s easy to register and create a post. See “How to post” in the sidebar of the Voices section.
