A Joy Ride thru Central Portland
Not a timed event, but still a contest. Kind of like Amazing Race. Riding together you’ll follow a map to each stop along the way. Look around to find the marker. Enter for a stamp, a playing card and a way to earn your next map. You’ll joy ride Portland. The winning team will enjoy big prizes. Everyone has a chance with the raffle. You will be followed by a film crew.
Each team of 4 riders each will start at Madison’s Grill and embark on a Joy Ride exploring the short-cuts and preferred bike routes of Central Portland. You will all start together with the first map. At each stop the next clue awaits. Don’t have a full team of 4? Sign up and we’ll put together teams.
Where: Madison’s Grill at 1109 SE Madison, just one block north of Hawthorne.
When: Saturday, June 18th. Start at Madison’s at 1109 SE Madison. Plenty of free parking for those that need it.
Time: 11 am – 2 pm. Start ride at 11 am. All teams must finish and be at Madison’s to win prizes by 2:00 pm. We’ll have a complimentary buffet ready for you and your famished team upstairs.
Sign Up: Go to madisonsgrill.com and click on the Joy Ride icon. Submit your contact info and we’ll get back to you to confirm your final registration.
Includes: Route maps, surprises along the way, snacks, emergency refreshments, passport, free food and prizes at Madison’s, specials on New Belgium beers, a feeling of accomplishment.
