On Monday (6/23), about 45 cyclists met at Amnesia Brewery and embarked on slow tour of the various manifestations of graffiti in North Portland.

The ride looked at the full range of Graffiti: stencils, stickers, tags, throw-ups and pieces along with other urban art. After some final drinks at the Bye-n-Bye the remainder of the ride watched ‘Style Wars’.

Thanks to all of those that came out and especially those that contributed to the discussions.

If you wish to contribute graffiti pictures please send them to the “Portland Graffiti” group on flickr.

Graffiti Ride photos can be found here. (Thanks Aaron!)
