    Portland BF Picnic/Get-Together...

    ...wondering if this could be made to happen. Portland's one of the best biking cities anywhere, but it seems to be just about as balkanized as BF is: roadies hang and ride with each other, mtber's are out in the forest somewhere, lots of people have different ideas about what bicycle activism and advocacy is or should be, or even what constitutes a proper cycling-related activity (hint: I think some people actually believe that drinking and riding is a bad idea...)


    Anyway, I think a picnic in a park in some central location would work for everybody and be lots of fun. It would be nice to put faces on all of these names. I think there are at least a few dozen active members from Portland. And to give everyone time to make plans, it would be good to have it in late August or early September, on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

    So what say you, PDX BFer's? Would you be interested in a low-key informal potluck/picnic sometime before the sunny season ends?

    What weekend would be best? Have any other ideas?

    I'm game. Labor Day weekend doesn't work for me, but most other weekends should.
