Photos: ‘Ronde’ ride and Filmed by Bike

Posted by on April 19th, 2011 at 12:57 pm

Two big events happened over the weekend: the Filmed by Bike festival and the De Ronde ride. I’ve tracked down photos of each to give you a taste of what you missed — or to help you relive the fun. Check them out below the jump…

Dave Roth snapped some great photos of the suffer-fest known as the De Ronde Van West Portlandia. The ride tackled nearly all of Portland’s toughest climb, from northern sections of NW Skyline Blvd to the West Hills. It ended at the top of Council Crest. Check out the action and the grimaces below…

Once again, a big crowd.

I have no idea what this was all about.

Pain

No shame in walking.

Incline-induced weaving.

The view at the top.

Feels good to be done (Nice job Frank!).

See more of Dave’s photos here.

And Filmed by Bike rocked the Clinton Street Theater. It started with a street party Friday night and there were screenings throughout the weekend. Check some photos below.

Torrential rains couldn’t stop the street party.

Great photos of the Ronde Ride, hope to ride it someday. Unbelievable expressions on their faces. It is interesting to see all the different types of bikes on this ride, my grandson really liked the Thomas the Train bike!

Regarding the caption “I have no idea what this was all about,” am I to infer you haven’t heard of the Little Engine that Could? Your poor children. 🙂

That is not the little engine tht could, that is Thomas the Tank Engine!

Please. He’s obviously in drag. When did Thomas ever climb a hill?

It’s about a kid who likes trains and a dad who likes bikes and spending time with his kid.
