New Year’s Day Ride

Posted by on December 20th, 2007 at 9:36 pm

This New Years Day, roll out of bed late and join us at noon for the 50-year-old New Years Day Ride! We’ll start at the Battleship Oregon Memorial in Waterfront Park and will cruise on an easy, family friendly route around the river and through SE Portland, before returning to McCall’s Restaurant (currently closed to the public) for hot cocoa, snacks and cookies by the fireplace. Then there will be a slow-bike race, a track-stand competition, and other games.

The ride is a benefit for the Brett Jarolimek Memorial Fund, which will support bicycle safety projects over the coming years.

PLEASE RSVP either by emailing Michelle or by making an optional donation to the Fund online

Start: 12:00 pm, Battleship Oregon Memorial, SW Oak and Waterfront Park, Portland
End: 1:00 pm, McCall’s Restaurant, SW Main and Waterfront Park, Portland
Cost: Optional donation
Kids? Yes! Bring ‘em!

POTLUCK: This is also a potluck. If you have a tasty snack you’d like to share, please email Michelle – michelle (at) bta4bikes (dot) org) and let her know! Cupcakes and ants-on-a-log are already spoken for…

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 — Jonathan

    Umm, Jonathan, on my browser (mozilla on Linux) there\’s text in red, that displays near the start of the article. The red text says the ride starts at 1PM. 1PM also appears under the \”Upcoming\” area on the right hand side of your web page. In the middle of your article, it says the start time is noon. I\’m guessing that noon is correct, since the description on the BTA web page says noon.
