Zoobomb’s big annual event, Mini Bike Winter, starts tonight. Now in its ninth year, the four-day event promises a mix of performances, parties, and pure fun that is sure to help ease your winter doldrums.

This year, in addition to usual favorites like the “Ben Hurt Chariot Wars” (just what they sound like, only crazier and with more smoke and blood), the “Mini Bike Winter Olympics” (which includes “bike bowling” (see below) a launch into the Willamette known as the “Cupcake Challenge” and more) and the “Badass Challenge” (a race to climb up the hill to Washington Park on a 16-inch bike), the event includes a special screening of “Bike Smut,” a collection of short bike movies.

Before I share more about Bike Smut… Check out the video below of the Bike Bowling action up at Mt. Tabor last year (video by Paul Jeffery)..

Bike Smut is a film fest organized by Portland’s very own purveyor of pedal-powered porn, Phil Sano. Just back from a globe-trotting tour Sano mixes cycling and sexuality by showcasing short, erotic, bicycle-inspired films By his estimation, Sano and his crew have traveled over 44,000 miles in the past 12 months — shocking and awing audiences from Spain to San Francisco.

You can catch Bike Smut at the Clinton Street Theater (2522 SE Clinton) tomorrow (2/17) at 6:30 pm.

As always, all the Mini Bike Winter festivities are free.

please note- bike porn is not made by phil sano. it is a collection of amateur shorts by people from all around the country (and some outside of the US!). phil has done a great job as host of the movies, bringing them near and far for years. but this blurb is a bit misleading – please give credit where credit is due!

that’s a good point Leah. Thanks. I’ve edited the article to make that more clear.

Yes Leah! It is great point that can’t be overstressed. The point of the collection is to experience a variety of opinions on the theme of better sex and better transportation. Tomorrow we get to engage the marketplace of bikesexual ideas.

Soon we will have our call for submissions for next years program, standby for stunning hand drawn art from our London branch!
