SMALL MUSEUMS BY BIKE REDUX Link
Movie Madness, 4320 SE Belmont, Portland, OR 97215 Take Trimet
12:00pm
The artist Carye Bye used to regularly have group bike rides to small museums around Portland, but those came to an end when she moved to San Antonio a couple years ago. This ride is a partial repeat of her Sellwood ride, and visits three small (and free) museums. We start at Movie Madness which is not only a video store but also a museum with many original movie props and costumes on display. From there we ride to the Milwaukie Museum, which re-opens this day after a remodel and exhibit update. And we finish at the Portland Puppet Museum, which not only displays many unique puppets but also presents puppet shows. This non-loop ride is 9.5 miles long and ends near the Springwater Corridor in Sellwood.

Show the world that moving by bike is the way to go! Bring your bicycle with cargo-carrying capacity and your go-get 'em attitude, because I've got 17 years worth of costumes (in addition to furniture, a well-stocked kitchen, and many unruly bicycles) to haul north. Plan on a 4 mile ride and beers (on me!) at the end.
