We hope you’re enjoying our special coverage from east Portland. I think I can speak for Michael (he’s nodding next to me here at our remote office in the Starbucks at Gateway Town Center) and say we love being out here. New streets, new people, and new perspectives.

In order to bring it all together we’d love to hear from some of you in person tomorrow night at the Rocky Butte Sunset Picnic Pedalpalooza ride. Rocky Butte is a quintessential east Portland biking destination and tomorrow night’s ride will be a perfect opportunity to highlight it.

Here are the details:

    The main ride meets at 7:00 pm (leaves at 7:30) at Irving Park (at the NE 11th & Klickitat side). Remember to bring food and drinks for a picnic. Ride happens rain or shine.

    I’ll be at The Outer Rim Bicycle Shop parking lot (10625 NE Halsey) tomorrow at 7:30. If you’d like to meet up there and head to Rocky Butte, it’s just a short ride away. We’ll leave the parking lot at 7:45 or so.

If you’d like to share your east Portland biking experiences, routes, tips, concerns, or whatever, find me on the ride tomorrow night and let me hear it. I’ll be taking notes (and maybe your photo) for one of our East Portland Week wrap-up posts on Friday.

As always, thanks for reading and now I return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
