Zoobomb is a weekly bicycling activity in Portland, Oregon, United States during which participants ride bicycles rapidly downhill in the city's West Hills. Zoobomb began in 2002.
Participants carry their bikes on MAX Light Rail to the Washington Park station next to the Oregon Zoo. From there, participants take the elevator to the surface and then ride their bikes down the hills in the vicinity. This process is often repeated several times throughout the night.
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.
