I suppose that was what attracted me to the bicycle right from the start. It is not so much a way of getting somewhere as it is a setting for randomness; it makes every journey an unorganized tour.

NOAH'S BIRTHDAY NIGHT RIDE Link
Slingshot Lounge, 5532 SE Center St, Portland, OR 97206 Take Trimet
9:00pm, ride at 10
have yet to add next Mon ride due to excess uncertainty.
(#8 should be interesting / no repeat, but the night calls for something less dubious than many chaos experiments have been/some I consider next...)

so, I thought, what better way to mark the day, if not hour of the terrifying milestone 3 x 13, than to share a little night time adventure.

this will be similar to my December MMR which started at the same location, but will end at one of my better Monday spots.

on this variant of big fun route, there will be (down)hills, strange routes, playtime, spelunking, provision stop, grand vistas, much music and of course a pleasant river side around midnight...

never thought I'd make it another year - perhaps I'll start this one right...

CRISSCROSS FREEZE RIDE 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.

Come in your Holiest garmets be the pope whatevs. Lets have funski. I'm meaning being change.
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.

I will attempt to make this a (nonlinear) loop. Drop out at any point.
More riding, less stopping. Come prepared because this is going to be an actual bike ride.

6:00pm - 1:00am
This is a all age 15 plus mile ride. We will tour Portlands animal shelters and visit Farrow cat houses that house over 5 cats. This effects biker safty and cat safety to. Cats lay in the road often almost getting hit. There many cats in Pdx not enough cat Lovers to take the load. Sounds like housing and hosting in Portland. We meet at Ventura Park and head to airport to bike Alderwood to animal shelter then the ride goes to animal hospital in Milwaukee area. We will be biking through dangerous streets of Portland street undriven by bike except me. I'll need a massive ride to conquer the rude aggressive out of state drivers that almost ran us over on Belmont on the Intergalactic Brass monkey ride. The traffic and drivers are really bad. Bike lanes are not enough. Cars all need Cameras on them with traffic police watching wirelessly then mailing tickets to these jerks.
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.
Animals welcome on ride
We then go on Thursday Night ride

MONDAY MEANDER (ROC) Link
Col. Summers Park, SE 20th and Belmont Take Trimet (near stone house)
6:45pm, ride at 7:15.
we will have a leisurely ride and end somewhere by water, to chill a while in the peace of night.
as well, I try to have some kind of stop before dark, though that is getting challenging - the inevitable supply stop may follow that.

this week we may end the furthest afield so far, though still under 11mi out - something other than south on river...

alternately, as 'RoC 10', perhaps we will revisit the Pedalpalooza ride - in any case, that will be done on one of the next few.

fwiw, the main significance of RoC is I do not finalize plan til day-of, that is all - rides are low-key.

much thanks to Nora for leading a great ride last week - was a lot of fun.

anyone who wants to lead any sort of future Monday eve ride - do let me know.

RIDE OF CHAOS 11 Link
Col. Summers Park, SE 20th and Belmont Take Trimet (near stone house.)
6:45pm, ride at 7:15.
alright, no point potting off the post this time - ride will go on. a little adventure for monday night.

certainly the last was nice, if not exactly according to plan... we will only go 15mi out again if monday riders want to - does open up options though...

I have some ideas of varying quality, and hopefully can manage to put together a decent & more planful plan of some sort. if anyone else is keen to lead this week, try to let me know before the weekend and that will be fine too.

sticking with same time one more week, like to roll at 7 after that, to still have some chance to catch any light.
