Car free=Carefree – Bicycle Service at Sunday Parkways

On Sunday, July 19th the Portland celebrates yet another bicycle holy day...

Come join the Bike Temple at Sunday Parkways. We will be set up at the intersection of NE 17th and Going all day long, as well as volunteering to help keep auto traffic out of the intersection. We will be towing out the Mobile Shrine and setting up for bicycle services throught the day. We will also likely be bringing along live music and a few church pews to really set the scene.
  • 10am-2pm - Bike Blessings–We will annoint your chainwith holy oil as well as certify and document your holy covenent with your bicycle (which will also serve as documentation of ownership should an evildoer decide to try abscond with it.)
  • 12:30pm - Communal Bicycle Picnic–Bring your favorite dish and beverage to share with other bicycle believers and we enjoy the company and serinity of human-powered traffic. We will have coolers at the intersection, cold and frozen things will be appreciated.
  • 2:00pm - Bicycle Sermon–Deacon Amos will present a short sermon at the intersection. Let your bike bell be your "Amen".
  • 2:30pm - Ride the Route with the Bike Temple–Join the Bike Temple as we ride the Sunday Parkways loop with the mobile shrine in tow.

Similar to Columbia's Cyclovia, Sunday Parkways takes popular and beautiful roads that are often overrun with cars and converts them into 6.6 miles of space for the people. The carfree streets connect a series of parks as well, so people are free to ride or walk from park to park without the hassle or danger of motorists on the roadway.

We hope to see you there!
