10:00am, Meet at 10am leave at 10:30!
Kick off 2017 on the right foot, with our New Year's Day Ride. This ride has been a long-standing tradition for our community, and thanks to a friend of The Street Trust (formerly the Bicycle Transportation Alliance) Scott Batchelar, the tradition lives on!

Start at Salmon Street Fountain and end at Cart Lab (indoor food carts and bar). The route is nearly a full loop - going over Tilikum Crossing and Sellwood Bridge. Ride will be a mellow pace and family-friendly, keeping mostly to neighborhood greenways, bike lanes, and multi-use paths.

Meet at 10am, ride departs at 10:30am; should be approx. 2.5 hour ride. Food and beverages at the end for purchase.

PURPLE RIDE : WEAR ROYAL PURPLE STOP DISCRIMINATION, RACISM, IMPERIALISM & CAPITALISM VANCOUVER LOOP Link FF
Purple Rides, Alberta Park Take Trimet (Meet at B Ball courts. )
4:00pm - 2:00am, We leave at 5pm after a. Small but hopfully giant ralley, Scattered days
. The show up in purple to fight this last time as one unified bike ride. We ride in purple as one unified being together as humans.
Where all purple to symbolize you discuss in This  imperialism and capitalism that's back from the dead
This is being used with other attempts to remove ourselves from within ourselves. Its a distraction that pulls focus away from what's real and instead focuses on what we are or appear on the outside. This racism is a card being okayed and played by capitalist.
Lets ride as one.
This fascist attempt to cause hate is not tolerated. Bike for a stop. This ride goes over state boarder. That's federal. We will line I 205 bike lanes with signs against this. If you feel nudity will make a change towards this feel free to come Bare as you dare.

MOVED TO SUNDAY THE 22ND! BOMB SHELTER RIDE Link
Clinton City Park, SE Woodward St and SE 57th Ave Take Trimet (meet at the Southeast corner of the park)
1:00pm
MOVED to SUNDAY the 22nd!
Weather looks peachy! Take a ride to the top of Kelly Butte to see the remains of the giant bomb shelter in operation there during the 1950s and 1960s. The facility became Portland's 911 Center after bomb shelters became obsolete, and later was abandoned. The entrances were totally sealed about 10 years ago, so we'll only be looking at the outside. The City of Portland has recently completed a new water storage facility atop Kelly Butte, so we'll also take a short walk (with bikes) along a trail leading to an overlook providing a view of that facility and the surrounding area. This ride is an 8.5 mile loop back to Clinton City Park and is flat except for the three blocks to the top of Kelly Butte.
