Throughout PedalPalooza, please consider what you would like to contribute to the Time Capsule 2012. Items will be collected at the 2008 MCBF. (So set your time dials for the year 2008, and ride the PedalPalooza timeline.)

10:00pm
Experience the seemy underbelly of a Portland whose seemy underbelly is rapidly becoming not as seemy. What really goes on behind the filthy doors of The Trap? Does Smokey's really live up to it's name? Does Mama Maria's really have "the best Italian food in town"? (Actually, we won't answer that one... trust me.) Live the strange but true lifestyle of a "Portland local" for a few hours. Cut a swath of pinball and pbr through the heart of Felony Flats.

Smores in Mt. Scott Park after last call.

Bored of drawing reclining nudes posed lazily on a couch? Then ride on down to Colonel Summers Park to draw action-packed poses by some of your favorite minibike dancers! Bring everything you'll need to do your art (lots of paper, pencils, pens, paints, pastels, even an easel if that's what it takes.) We'll start with a series of quick gesture drawings, then move on to longer poses of up to 15 minutes. Nudity = ? Still seeking another minibike model or two...contact me if you're interested.

Bicycle Transportation Alliance, 233 NW 5th Ave, Portland Take Trimet
5:30pm - 6:30pm
When you were a kid you probably biked, and it was easy. You did it barefoot. With an ice cream in one hand. No sweat.

Now you look around you and think "Biking? Around all these cars? Scary!"

Biking in the city doesn't have to be scary, despite all the cars. In this workshop we'll go over the skills that will make you safer and more comfortable on the road.

We'll also cover basic bike laws, necessary gear, and route finding.

No actual bicycles or roads involved however - just bring your questions, and we'll send you off with maps and newfound confidence that you can do it.
