    Randya, are you in the video? Where exactly was this taken? I've only ever driven past Maryhill, not actually been on the grounds.

    I did not participate in that particular road trip, although I would have liked to. Maryhill is at the east end of the Columbia River Gorge, more or less on the Washington side across from The Dalles. There is an art museum, a full-size replica of Stonehenge, and that nice road they were riding/skating on is closed to motor vehicles. There's an official 'gravity' event there coming up later this summer, skate, bike, street luge, etc.

    I used to live in on 21st and Salmon at the base of Washington Park. I would hear zoobombers at 11pm causing a scene down the hills of Portland. Sometimes I fantasized about throwing eggs at them from my 10th floor window for waking me up.

    I suppose that this means I should make some time to visit the place. My husband and I have driven by it on the way to Eastern Washington, but have never had the time to stop. Time to make time!

    Any other BF members in the vid?

    So if you want to avoid some of the madness known as SeaFair--head down south for a much more entertaining event.

    Thanks Capn iFUN!, I'll have to keep my eye on the soon-to-be website.

    that's and IGSA event, its gonna be huge! its not just a race, its a 5 day festival, the biggest of its kind ever held in north america. i personally know of a gravity bikes and some lugers that are coming from australia for this, im hoping to go to but gravity bikes are expensive to ship on top of all the other costs. keep yer eyes on the gravity sports, theyre growing bigger in the u.s. every year. the faster the machines and riders get, the fewer motor powered vehicles can keep up with us, on some hills they cant even compete. top speeds for g-bikes wont be that breathtaking on the maryhill from what i hear, but the luges and buttboards will be smokin! fast eddie outty

    I was hoping that you'd chime in, Fast Eddie. If I manage to straggle down there, it'd be cool to meet some of the Alt Bike regulars .

    The zoo is metaphorical in this case.

    You should put up a sign that says ZOO at the top of the hill.
    Most people will be like "what the heck?", but some will know.

    That's why us ambassadors must spread the word. Y'all shall worship minibike culture at the Church of ZooBomb...
