November Ride

We’re meeting at Pix Patisserie (2225 E Burnside).

There’s outdoor seating, but the covered section is also the smoking section.

There’s no service outside – order from the bar.

Last call is at 11:30pm.

Come prepared for a socially paced ride of 8 to 12 miles with a couple of social, not shopping, stops. There is a Plaid Pantry a couple of blocks away – SE corner of 20th and Burnside, as well as other fun bars nearby.

At midnight, we ride!

October Ride – Friday the 13th Edition!

Tonight’s ride meets at the Sandy Hut:  1430 NE Sandy Blvd

The rain is supposed to stop around 9:00 PM.

It’s Friday the 13th, so your leaders have sent this warning — “Be prepared to get creeped the heck out!”

The end spot will be nice and warm.

Freakbike pace.

It’s the HALLOWEEN ride, so dress up if you dare…

Also, your leader tonight is cousins with the December leader and the November leader gave up his spot this month so this month’s leader could have it because he’s sooooo excited about it being both Friday the 13th and Halloween month.  So we guess what we’re trying to say is — we’re all one big, awesome, creative, bikey family and we’re thrilled as heck that you all worked together to get the next three months to be as awesome as possible.

Rock on.

 

At midnight, we ride…

At midnight, we ride.

The ride starts at The Know WHICH HAS MOVED, so don’t head to Alberta lookin’ for the MMR…  Instead, go to 3728 NE Sandy Blvd.  Stay out of the street before hand by meeting in front of the adjacent dispensary.

At midnight, we ride,

June Ride – Pedalpalooza Edition

Happy Pedalpalooza, lovers of midnight!

Are you all ready for the biggest, wildest ride of the year?  We hope so.

First things first – we’re meeting at Hanigan’s (aka The Vern -2622 SE Belmont St).  Do.  Not.  Block.  Belmont.  Instead, muster to the East in the parking lot there.

Now – for those of you who are veterans of the ride – PLEASE BE ON YOUR BEST BEHAVIOR.  Don’t get wasted.  Demonstrate how to ride in groups (“On your left!”  “Slowing!”  “Car up!”  “POLE!!!”…)  Don’t ride in front of the leader.  Don’t pull ass moves in front of tall bikes.  Stay out of oncoming traffic.  Leave no trace.

For the newbs out there…  Do as the veterans do.  The only way we’ve gotten away with this ride for this many years is out of RESPECT and a little bit of street smarts.  If the cops show up, assume they’re there to help and let the ride leader speak to them.  Be prepared to end up some place you’ve never been before.  Bring what ever you need to be comfortable.  Sleeping bag?  Phone charger?  A case of beer?  Cash?  A map?  Cookies?

All of you – bring lights and a lock.  Keep your lights on the non-blinking setting during the ride.  Lock your bike at the end location.

And, as always, there’s no better time than the present to sign up to lead a ride in the future.  We have plenty of open months this summer, so sign up now!

At midnight, we ride…

May Ride

One pizza-themed MMR in NW Portland was not enough!

See you all tonight at Pizza Schmizza:  320 NW 21st Ave

Karaoke starts up at 9pm.

Weather is looking clear for overnight and we have an end spot with coverage in case of rain.

Bikeable by all skill levels, tall bikes are doable as your leader will be leading via a singlespeed tall.

It will be a little bit challenging here and there but not impossible…

At midnight, we ride!
