. 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.

If you've ever lived in the South, you'll be familiar with Cracker Barrel, a restaurant chain known for its Southern cuisine. The chain has opened their first location on the West coast, and this bike ride goes down to Tualatin for a late lunch there (bring $). The restaurant has bike memorabilia on the wall including a 3-speed bicycle, and the facility also contains the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store with a lot of unique merchandise. Right next to this Cracker Barrel is Cabela's, which is worth visiting for its animal waterfall and giant aquariums at the back of the store. This ride is 19 miles one-way and 38 miles round trip, and follows the entire length of the paved Fanno Creek Trail. Trimet is optional for the trip back to Portland.

May is the month for the Bike More Challenge and this ride is designed to get in some weekend miles and also earn the 25 Miles in a day badge. The loop course is actually 26.6 miles in length to provide a little leeway for cellphone apps that autolog your rides. Half of the ride is on the Springwater Corridor going out as far as the hidden balancing rock garden just off the trail, and the entire loop is flat.

A WARM SPRING-WATER NIGHT RIDE Link
Johnson Creek City Park, SE 21st Ave & SE Clatsop St Portland, OR 97202 Take Trimet (meet adjacent to the wooden bridge over the water)
8:00pm - 11:00pm
Have you ever wanted to ride the outer length of the Springwater Corridor after dark, but not alone? Then this is the bike ride to go on! It will still be light for the 17 miles out to Boring, but the 17-mile return ride will be in darkness. Some sections of the corridor are illuminated by adjacent street lights, while others are so dark the only thing that stands out are the eyes of the feral cat population reflecting in your bike headlight. Tuesday's going to be warm, but it will be cooling down by the time of this ride.

STRAIGHT EDGE RIDE Link FF
3 Day Rides, Hillsboro Max Station Take Trimet (Ride from Hillsboro to Vernonia trail. )
7:30pm - 10:30am, We leave at 8;30. I'll not wait.
If  bike life's so good and your so healthy then you should be able to keep up. Ride ends at Vernonia Oregon. You don't show then Drunks stink. This is a 3 day trip returning as group unless you can't hang your welcome to get picked up at State Park there. See you real peeps. Looking for Straight edge friends that only smoke weed. Booze hurt your health and they cause fights and aggressive actions. Drunks often don't get it.
But if we drink let's do wine and only a toast.
