9:00am - 10:30am
Wake up at a civilised hour to roll over to the park for coffee. This is a BYO affair, either make it there via camp stove, or bring brewed coffee. Something to eat isn't a bad idea, either. Spend a bit here with friends, what's the hurry?

BREASTFEEDING BIKE RIDE! Link FF
11:00am - 12:00pm
During Sunday Parkways in North Portland let's meet up a little bit before the women's ride in Arbor Lodge Park at 11:00 am (I'll be near the swings at Harper's Playground in the shade -- hopefully with a nipple sign! :). Anyone who's breastfeeding can nurse their little one then set out at noon with the women's ride!  I'm working on a photo series called 101 Breast Places to Feed Your Baby in Portland.  I'd love to get a group together to support normalizing breastfeeding during one of the most family friendly events in the city.  You can follow me on Instagram [at]alionhorse to see more from the series.

SEATTLE TO PORTLAND RIDERS CONNECT Link
1:30pm - 2:00pm
This a meet and greet for people signed up for the Seattle to Portland ride on July 15-16 (and/or fans and supporters!).  Let's get acquainted with others bold enough to be doing this crazy event!

Promptly at 1:45 I'll lead an icebreaker and round of questions to introduce everyone and find out reasons for riding/experience. We can then informally discuss carpooling to Seattle, mid-ride camping in Centralia, and possibly training rides.

No ride organized, just lunch outside at the food trucks (get there early to buy yours and bring it over) in the wonderful PNW summer, and the opportunity to recognize a few faces as we are plowing thru the 203 mile trek!  

Maybe we can even discuss post-race massage trade :)

NORCAL BIKE PARTY PIRATES Link

Here we come more darn Norcal pirates funking up the place. We are the lousy neighbors you just love to hate. We promise we won't stay long. Only until we've plundered as much of the beautiful Portland bike culture as we can get our hooks into. Portland is truly a Bike Party Pirates Dreams.

I know there are California transplants up here. Don your pirate gear
and come ride with us. We won't judge you. You don't have to tell your native Portlander friends, it will be our little secret.  

We're gonna stop at Voodoo Donuts. We end at the Skidmore bluffs hopefully by sunset.
