FIRST (LAST?) FIRST FRIDAY BIKE RIDE Link
Top of Mt Tabor, Top of Mt Tabor Take Trimet
7:30pm
I'm leaving Portland forever (for a while? who the fuck knows anything) and I want to lead a bike ride for my bike friends and also for whoever shows up. If you're into bikes, we could probably be friends (maybe not) and you should come to this ride. I dunno if there's been a First Friday ride before, so as far as I'm concerned, this is the first First Friday ride, but it also might be the last because I won't be around to lead another. Meet at the top of Mt Tabor at 7:30pm. Ride by 8:00. Expect a mild challenge and a moderate pace. Zero gas station parking lots and no bonfires. Only bike ridin
