RIDE OF CHAOS 2 Link
Col. Summers Park, SE 20th and Belmont Take Trimet (near brick house)
7:30pm, ride at 8.
As I had numerous end spots in mind for the Pedalpalooza edition, I intended to do a ride regularly after the fest, as long as it is fresh. finally it begins.

generally, I consider this a 'small mystery ride' - there will sometimes be be a sunset-ish stop, and each will end somewhere I have never been on any group ride that has ended at (in its present state at least), where we might potentially chill with a nice blaze near water's edge... I do hope future MMR leaders attend, as some of these may well be worth revisiting.

I have at least 8 spots in mind - average is 5-6mi (1wy) and furthest is under 10. this 2nd begins at default time/place from the 1st one, but I am open to rotating days - find me on the TNR.

please leave no trace.

Fubonn parking lot, 2850 SE 82nd Ave. Take Trimet
7:00pm
Come to this bike ride if you are an immigrant or if you support immigrants and want to keep the doors of this country open to immigrants. Cause think about it, unless you're fully native American, someone in your family came to this country as an immigrant. This country is MADE of immigrants and it needs immigrants to flourish! Let's celebrate immigrants and immigration!

The ride will meet at 7pm at Fubonn. If you want to pick up some groceries, you might want to get there earlier, because we roll at 7:30pm. We'll ride over to the Portland Mercado and grab a bite there. And then we'll head to The Goodfoot, where DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid will be hosting Tropitaal, their Desi/Latino mashup. Come hungry and come with your dance on!
