Burnside Bridge Slalom

Posted by on July 18th, 2007 at 10:37 am

(The Burnside Bridge is closed to motorized vehicles for the next three weeks!)

A sport that will only last for three weeks (or, perhaps, one night):

Meet at the West Burnside Bridge approach

Spectators: you are advised to bring cowbells, bullhorns, foam
fingers, flash bulbs that go POOF!
Racers: you are advised to bring pads, a helmet, and something
skintight with a number on it.
All: don’t expect hard-and-fast rules except this one: go hard and fast.

Minis, skateboards, wheelchairs, 15 lb. Orbeas, and 150 lb. dutch
bikes are all welcome.

Refreshments encouraged as long as they are (or appear to be) legal.

NOTE: We love your comments and work hard to ensure they are productive, considerate, and welcoming of all perspectives. Disagreements are encouraged, but only if done with tact and respect. If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you.

    Dham! I missed it…and I was so close to the fun in Old Town.
