Bringing people together for Bike Fun
in Portland, Oregon
 

Bikey Fun, November 2012

RSS
Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
The world lies right beyond the handlebars of any bicycle that I happen to be on anywhere from New York Bay to the Vallee de Chevreuse. Anywhere is high adventure, the walls come down, the cyclist is a loner, it is the only way for him to meet other loners. And it works. One seldom exchanges anything but curses or names of insurance companies with another driver, the car inhibits human contacts. The bicycle generates them; bikes talk to each other like dogs, they wag their wheels and tinkle their bells, the riders let their mounts mingle.

Meet at Pirate Island on the Esplanade.  Bring your Bike Club Vest.  If you don't have one, come along anyway and you will figure it out.

We will ride to the secret location and watch a movie.
