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.
