Remember this photo of City Commissioner Sam Adams riding a Zoobomb bike in front of City Hall?
Well, he’s not Portland’s only pedal-friendly politician. Check out the photo below of Mayor Potter posing with CHUNK 666 in Southeast Portland.
It was taken by CHUNK’s chief chronicler, Silken.
I asked Silken for more details but in typically mysterious CHUNK fashion, he declined my request.

This looks like it was taken at the Woodstock neighborhood parade in July. Mayor Potter rode in it (in a car) and so did CHUNK.
Before being elected Mayor, Candidate Potter did several neighborhood rides to meet and mingle with voters — on his recumbent bike. So he’s very comfortable with oddly-shaped bikes.
[And please don’t flame me if you’re a recumbent rider. By “oddly-shaped,” I just mean, “not the traditional diamond-frame.” So, relax!]
