Happy Walk+Bike to School Month! To celebrate, we joined the innaugural "Llewellyn Kidical Mass" with

We're warming up for another exciting cycling season and just returned from covering the Coast Hills Classic last weekend -- our first mountain bike event of 2012!
The city of Newport brought mountain biking back to the coast this year with
an awesome course featuring gorgeous ocean views, open meadows, sick
downhill, gnarly single track, killer climbs, and a muddy course. Stay tuned to CrankMyChain for our forthcoming video capturing all the action, scenery and sunshine! Thanks to presenting sponsor Bike Newport for throwing down an awesome party Saturday night and showing us their amazing coastal hospitality.
Congratulations to winners Ross Brody of Lake Oswego and Sue Butler of Portland! Way to represent at the coast!!

general consensus is that there needs to be a party and potluck
Saturday night and camp needs to be cleaned and cleared of much of the
stuff (tents and other belongings) in advance. Occupiers want as many

committees were formed. I joined with the folks who wanted to see
bicyclists and pedestrians gather and circle the park. It was decided

were 500 very activated people. It was very clear that tactical

. See videos below.Protect the occupation! Swarm this Saturday Night Nov 12, on foot or on bicycle.11pm
at Salmon St Fountain (SW Naito and Salmon in waterfront park) we meet
to circle and rally around Chapman and Lownsdale Squares. Also feel
free to arrive in affinity groups on the hour at the site all
night/morning long. Bring good spirits, costumes, music, street
theater!Also bring rain gear (yellow/fluorescent), warm clothing, coffee, and a festive attitude. Don't
bring drugs, alcohol or violence. Be prepared to stay up late or be
called back later since we won't know when the Swarm will be needed
most. Text PDXOccupy to 23559 to receive critical updates.Tonight’s ride should be a good warm up for tomorrow’s.
