Hey! You need something to keep you going for all this bikey fun! Why not enjoy a potluck-style brunch by the folks who invented “Sunday Brunch”! (not fact-checked). Bike by and bring food to share (veggie/vegan preferred). Plenty of bicycle parking. Sure, it may be “early”, but chances are you’ll still be up from the night before! And who is this Gracies?

DEAD FREEWAYS RIDE

2375 NW Thurman St (in front of Food Front Cooperative Grocery)
11am
What if…Portland built all the freeways it planned? This ride will follow the routes of several highways that never made it off the drawing board, such as the fabled Mt. Hood Freeway, some that did but were later removed, like Harbor Drive, and also as a reference some freeways that currently exist. Dressing up and/or decorating bikes is highly encouraged, let’s celebrate!
