"Joy of Xhurches" ride, Sunday Aug 7th

The Bike Temple is pleased to partner with Matt at the Xhurch to have the first ever tour of Xhurches in Portland.

Xhurchs are buildings that look like churches, used to be churches, but aren't churches anymore. They may be private residences, community centers, event centers, schools, or anything else.

On the June "Joy of Sects" ride we visited the Xhurch on NE 20th and Going -- we were invited in by Matt, who told us about the various events that happen there, some religious, some secular, and some somewhere in between. (like a live nativity scene -- )

The ride will visit xhurches of all descriptions -- including a "nascent xhurch" -- a masonic temple, turned Christian church, now for sale for whatever purpose anyone cares to put it to.

Meet at the Bike Temple at 11:00am, depart at 11:15 sharp. We'll cover 6 different xhurches in about 12 miles. Pace is slow.

Bike Temple is at 6 NE Wygant St. (N Williams at Wygant).

Your in The Faith,
Pasture Ted
