Grill By Bike

This was probably the coolest of all the clubs I rode with in Portland.
Their Mission: To Grill by Bike
Their Motto: Ride on Fire
Politics and President: None
Proper Attire: A Good Ol' Beach Style Shirt

They were cool enough that I left The Great Pumpkin in their possession

Location(s)Portland, Oregon, USA
Years activeSince 2002; 13 years ago
ParticipantsOver 100 (as of 2005)[dated info][1]
Zoobomb is a weekly bicycling activity in Portland, OregonUnited States during which participants ride bicycles rapidly downhill in the city's West Hills. Zoobomb began in 2002.[1]
Participants carry their bikes on MAX Light Rail to the Washington Park station next to the Oregon Zoo.[2][3] From there, participants take the elevator to the surface and then ride their bikes down the hills in the vicinity.[4] This process is often repeated several times throughout the night.[3]

If you ever make it to the City of Portland, go Zoobomb on Sunday Nights. I was able to get The Great Pumpkin (tallbike) onto the light rail and take it to the top a few times. At one point we fired up the grill on the back of the Pumpkin and grilled Cinnamon Granola cheese pizza on a layer of burritos. We cooked them the duration of 3.3 miles and shared our feast while waiting for the next train to the top.

As much as I have opposed the NAHBP in the past, it was good for me to play in the South West Qualifiers. I had only one aggressive call ( I made somebody fall down because I was riding too fast and close to them, Yea really). It made me realize that I like bike polo in all shapes and forms. I need to support the sport, no matter how stupid it gets or how much people argue over the rules. There were rules, yet I still had fun.... weird. The South West Bike Polo folks were great to me. I had a random team with some RADom chicks. One girl cracked her ribs day one game one. She played ten more games over the next two day and we placed +0 or 13th out of 20th place.  I was happy to achieve that, and happy to show the SW how to make a proper rear brake slide.

New Polo Court in San Francisco. I happened to be passing through on opening day. The fucking city decided to host a silent disco on the court for the opening day of the park. 15 people sat with sad faces with their mallets as people danced to headphone music, almost as if they were mocking us. Day two we tore it up.
