Yesterday I received an anonymous email about a mysterious, “penniless, suffering, pirate ride” coming to Portland next week (4/7).
The flyer (below) proclaims it will be:

Sounds like a suffer-fest. Here’s the route, and you’ve got to love the flyer:
I have no idea who is putting this together, but I’m tempted to do it and “collapse at Council Crest Park” with whoever else shows up.
