We are hosting a Coat and Sleeping Bag Drive in addition to our ThanksGivin’It Ride. We ask that you join us in helping our Houseless Residents here in Portland by donating un-used, and lightly-used, hats, jackets, gloves, sleeping bags, and blankets. Donations can be dropped off at Sellwood Cycle Repair on November 24th-25th. Or if you’re joining us for the ThanksGivin’It Ride on the 26th you can bring them to the start of the ride!
Our annual celebration of the end of the Cross season is back! ThanksGivin’It will happen the Sunday after Thanksgiving (Nov 26th).
This year we’re happy to announce that we’re collaborating with Chris King – they’ll play host at their facility in NW Portland. We’ll meet up there 8-ish for coffee and pastries, then go for a sweet ride on the gravel and firelanes of Forest Park. The ride will be suited to adult riders of varying abilities and will break up into a longer, more challenging route and a shorter, easier route. The ride should leave around 9 and return by 12.
Post ride we will return to Chris King HQ for food and beer. Their in-house chef will prepare the main course and we invite you all to bring pot luck style sides, bread, dessert etc.
Proceeds to be donated to OBRA to help replace the equipment recently stolen from their storage at Alpenrose (http://obra.org/posts/127560?page=1).
