ZOOFOOD Link
Lardo, SE Hawthorne Blvd. and SE 12th Ave. Take Trimet (Lardo bike rack)
7:30pm, Roll out 8PM sharp
Thinking about Zoobombing tonight? Join us early at the Lardo bike rack on the corner of SE Hawthorne and SE 12th. There are many choices of eateries. I will be at Lardo hanging around while watching everyones bikes, so no worries.
Give yourself plenty of time if you plan to eat and drink, at least an hour or more. We will roll out 8pm sharp to get to the Zoobomb pile (13th and Burnside) by 8:30. From there we will follow the Zoobomb veterans to the main event. If you are a newbie to Zoobombing, check out the Zoobomb post for info on what to expect. This is, of course, not a loop ride so you can bail at any time.
Helmets, spare tubes, tools, good brakes and bright lights are a must for safe Zoobombing.

RANDOM ROLL & CHILL (ROC7) Link
Col. Summers Park, SE 20th and Belmont Take Trimet (near stone house.)
7:15pm, ride at 7:45.
perhaps the last one is hard to top in some ways... but possibilities are endless and we will for sure do something new this week one way or another. one day we will even head north again.

these rides tend to combine easy & tricky. never so very long but often including a small bit of trails / interesting maneuvers.

general format is a short stop or other opportunity to enjoy evening before dark and then venturing on to some perhaps unusual spot to chill a while longer, generally by the water side.

I may be interested in occasional guest leaders after #8.

Mostly, lets be together and ride in solidarity as we mourn yet another tragic lost.

Starts with a   prayer and four directions dance and ceremony  to the dedication of roads safer and updated for higher population density then Sage and other resins will be burned and a farewells to the great teenager that woke Portland up to moving so many people into Oregon without retrofitting roads that are safe for higher density population and children,pedestrians and cyclist.
Any donations or Precedes will be taken to Portland police by a designated treasure. The Donation her family needs is prayer for there joy of life. There daughter that was almost a adult has died from the greeed of over populating a city made for 100,000 people roadway wise.We will meet at intersection blocking it with my ceremony and bikes.

FREEZE Link
Critical Freezes, Colenal Summers Park Take Trimet
6:30pm - 9:50pm, Leave 7:30
This ride assures safer street by collapsing rush hour traffic with massive traffic interruptions via air horns bright Lights and freezing in massive intersection of 82nd and cross streets Stark and other suggested areas worth Freezing. This is a crucial ride.
This is a freeze protest.    But if we move swiftly and our numbers are 100 people and over this ride will make news and nobody will be apprehended. We do have rights of a car. So we also deserve Better bike Areas. We will freeze intersections by strategically blocking 8 lanes on all four sides of intersections for the time of one light set I decided. Means nobody rides. We form a bike circle and chain to enforce that terrific stops.
I take time from finding a room to rent to help make a difference in a city that don't even help me. So I'll hope you all respect my organizing and time out of my life to help a city that hardly works for me function for you.
Thanks for respect.

Holy Spokes  is a political ride only occurs on  September 11  every 4 to 7 years depending on  election times.
This is a compassionate ride. Its not a ego ride its a Zen ride. Its just a ride for fair rent prices that protest that our wages are not enough. Streets are to small for mass population. Face it it's becoming expensive. Many of us secretly live in a garage or in The families or friends houses to afford it. The lack of money causes confusion. With streets not safe for Peds and bikes there needs to be a clamp on how many people can move here or something. Cities to tiny.

Cats and dogs are in danger with this current situation also. Little kids are also in danger without proper policing of traffic cruising drinking areas. Police don't care about dangerous drivers here. There biggest care is kids smoking at Col Summers and going after a person for not leashing there dog.
