oregon manifest II





so before i get started talking more about the show, there is something else i want to mention. this week is the community food drive for the food bank in whatcom county. if you can, please donate. there are people who really need it to eat.
back to the show. saturday came early. up late street riding. it is portland after all. there was a much bigger crowd saturday. everyone liked jill's new ride. especially the ladies. the coolest thing i saw that day was a t shirt that had a picture of a hummer on it. then in the same font, was "dummer". it was sweet. good interest in the bikes. we shall see though. all of us, and our shit, had to be out of the building by 10pm. break down was much easier/quicker with kevin there. that night was a party/roller races "sponsored" by rapha. some clothing co. so we head over, only to find out it cost $10 to get in. i asked "what about exhibitors?". $10 to get in. so we turned around and went street riding again. real nice sponsorship. sunday was a cross crusade series race. in case you don't know, portland's cross scene is big. we, the builders, were supposed to build up a cross bike to display at the race. then ride a builder's lap. then put them back on display. the weather was rad, so the bikes weren't too muddy or anything. i also raced the c class. man, cross is fun. that was my first experience, but not the last. back into town for some sunny bmxing. there is tons of good stuff to ride in that town. every sunday night is zoo bomb. a portland tradition. we grabbed helmets and lights, and went to the meeting spot. once everyone else was there, the small bikes were unlocked, and handed out. we rode our bmx. over to the train, and up to the zoo. it's kind of a gathering/party. beers, smokes, laughter. "10 minutes!" it's basically a group ride that bombs down to the train station. get back on the train, head up for another run. we did this about 4 times, until an extended hang out session at the very top. which meant a lot of uphill pedaling after the train ride. at around 1:45, we bombed what is known as k2. long and fast into downtown. wow, what a weekend. here are some more pics. the camera ended up with kevin, and is in salem. so there will be more pics once that thing gets here. g
