1:00pm
Ride from Portland to Gresham following the Springwater Corridor the entire way until the ascent of Hogan Butte - a little-known hill in Gresham with spectacular views. If you're not familiar with Portland, the Springwater is a paved path dedicated to bicycles and pedestrians following a former railway along Johnson Creek. The first 13 miles of this 15-mile ride are on the flat Springwater, but the "high country" in the title comes from the last 2 miles, with a 600-foot ascent to the 920-foot top of Hogan Butte. The summit has sweeping grassy fields providing views of Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, and Mt. Jefferson. This is an out/back ride, or three miles from the summit is the Gresham MAX Light Rail station going back to Portland.

CARGO BIKES 101 WITH PDX CARGO BIKE GANG Link FF
Books with Pictures, 1100 SE Division St Take Trimet (Use staples by Ford Bldg or Genie's Cafe, meet inside the shop.)
12:00pm
What are my favorite parts of the cargo bike community? The people (they do interesting things like open inclusive comic book shops), finding new and flatter routes that open up more destinations to me, and hanging out while we chat about bikes and the kids play. Ive combined all these into a PDX Cargo Bike Gang ride. We start at Katie Proctors just-opened Books with Pictures on SE Division and flat-route our way to Staccato Gelato. *Bring $ for treats.* Well take our treats over to DaVinci Middle School (walkable if you dont have a cargo bike to carry treats while you ride) where the kids can play while we chat. Perfect ride for the cargo bike curious to see what the fuss is about.

2ND ANNUAL MAGICAL UNICORN RIDE!! Link FF
Col. Summers Park, SE 20th and Belmont Take Trimet (by the tennis court!)
2:00pm - 4:30pm
This is a call for all unicorns, of all ages, in the City of Portland (and beyond) to gather together at our enchanted green patch: the greenery next to the tennis court at Colonel Summers Park. Not everyone will be able to see us, since we are magical beings, but we will be able to see each other! Unicorns barely touch the ground- some even say they merely skim it, so finding the trail of a unicorn is almost impossible! We will go on an adventure: to the top of candy mountain, and back down for vegan soft serve. Ride as bare as you dare or roll around in sparkles! The shimmery and more glittery, the better. Bike decorations highly encouraged. Meet at 2 to sparkle up, fly out at 2:15.
Glitter, sidewalk chalk & dance jams provided!

HOOPS & HOPS Link
Irving City Park, 3300 NE 7th Avenue Take Trimet (We'll be out there, you'll spot a woman wearing a crab hat in honor of Allen Crabbe.)
5:00pm
Basketball, biking, and beer: Three things Portland excels at, so let's combine them.

Meet at Irving City Park at 5pm on Saturday June 11th. We're going to play a few games of knockout, or "bump" depending on what you call it.

We'll then bike to a bar, have a drink, hang out for a bit and bike to a second park and play another few games of knockout. Once the herd wants to quench its collective thirst we'll go on another stop.

Plan is to hit three parks and play, then go to a nearby food cart pod and eat a late dinner.

No entry fee but a non-perishable food item is encouraged and will be donated to the Oregon Food Bank. Let's do some good while we do something slightly childish.

Please bring cash to make it easier on the kind bart
