The 5th Annual* Bunny on a Bike Ride
The “Great” Bunny Convergence
Easter Sunday, March 23, 2008, 2 pm
Join us for the 5th annual Bunny on a Bike Ride in Portland, Oregon. Bunnies on Bikes from North, Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, and Northwest, we are gathering for a Play-date in the Park on Easter Sunday. We’ll meet in 5 different parks and make our way to the “Great” gathering in the geographical center of Portland!
Five Starting Destinations. Meet at 2 pm:
SE: Col. Summers Park (SE Belmont & 20th)
SW: Salmon Street Fountain at Waterfront Park (SW Salmon & Naito Pkwy)
NW: Jamison Square (NW Johnson & 10th Ave)
N: Peninsula Park (at the gazebo, N Ainsworth & N Albina Ave)
NE: Grant Park (by Ramona Statue, NE 33rd Ave & US Grant Place)
PLUS: Day-time Bunny Bomb meets at 1 pm at upper level Zoo Max Station and will meet up with the SW bunnies.
Wear your ears and your tail and your park-play clothes. We’ll play and picnic rain or shine. Bring a tasty treat that bunnies like to eat to share in a potluck picnic (Don’t forget a cup, dish, and utensils!)
Playful games in the park will be a must. Bring frisbees, hula-hoops, balls and rackets, and your bunny friends.
Free. Social Pace on regular roads. Children must be with an adult. Lone riders under 8 not recommended. Also you may want to tape your name on anything you bring out.. just in case! Please note, this year the ride is NOT a loop ride, we want to leave our play-time open ended and spontaneous! If you adventure on the ride, and need help getting back, ask around or find a buddy bunny to ride with. The biking distance will vary per ride, but expect 45 min to an hour of ride time to our destination.
*This is Red Bat Press’s last year organizing the Bunny on a Bike Ride. This ride is being gifted to the community, and we all hope it will happen next year!
Please contact with any questions or concerns.
