We still have some open slots to lead rides this year. Interested in joining Team Midnight as a leader in 2021? Send us a message today at midnightmysteryridePDX@gmail.com.
Leading an MMR is easy — find an outdoor place to start, ride us along a fun route, and take us to an outdoor location to hang at a distance. No need to have ever led a ride before, and we do the promoting for you.
In the last few years the Dec. MMR has had 12-25 people. Expecting low turnout due to it raining all day, and COVID-19 raging.
An adventure in December always, tonight we meet under the east side of the Hawthorne bridge near the drinking fountains and fire department facility. Bring lots of lights and music for this utterly moist outside ride. Overdress or shiver!
If you’ve had contagious illness symptoms of any kind whatsoever in the last 48 hrs, please respectfully skip this ride. COVID-19 is a serious threat in Portland, especially tonight. All riders need to acknowledge this and assume that every other rider around them does NOT want to be exposed to any form of germ transmission FROM you.
To do this:
* Give plenty of space on the road in all directions to other riders, especially in front of you.
* Bring a mask or get one from the ride leader, there will be plenty available.
* Keep your mask on while you’re riding, while you’re talking, and while you have anyone in your 6′ bubble
* Never cough or sneeze or blow snot into the air that other people will be riding through. Cover that shit up, and then don’t touch anybody.
* BYOB and CUP, snacks.
The rain should stop just in time for the ride. Thank you for accepting these insane circumstances, and for looking after the health of your community members.
Meet at the fountain at the Peninsula Park Rose Garden (700 N Rosa Parks Way).
Wear a mask. Keep at least 6 feet from fellow lovers of midnight. Respect each other. If you see someone wearing a mask, don your mask before approaching. If you must take your mask off at the start and end locations to sip your beverages, keep your distance from your friends.
Last month we had new riders join us explicitly because they heard we were going to require masks. Don’t disappoint the newbies. Make MMR a safe space for all.
At midnight, we ride.
MMR has entered Phase One of reopening with precautions in place to protect the community from Covid-19.
Meet at the west end of Laurelhurst Park by the hammock-friendly birch trees. Bring your hammock, masks and whatever layers you need.
Our ride leader respectfully requests that you wear your mask and keep your distance while socializing. There will not be a store stop or centralized bonfire at the end, but this birthday leader promises to make this a fun night!
Bring your binoculars if you want to see a Pre Birthday Omen Comet.
