It's the final month of Pedalpalooza, Portland's summer-long bicycle fun fest. Last time we checked in I had went on the Kickoff Ride on June 1st, Tom Howe's Know Your Greenways Ride on June 8, and then the first two rides I have led: Sunset/Moonrise and the Gorge Ride. Since that report on June 27,... Continue Reading →
Riding along the Marine Drive bike path, 13 July 2022. Canon Snappy K/Kodak Gold 200 Initially I thought that I would be out of town for July's full moon, but when that trip didn't materialize I decided to add another Sunset/Moonrise Ride to the Pedalpalooza calendar. I always have fun on this ride, so why... Continue Reading →
Emee on the ferry, from our 2019 San Juans Trip After my first bike overnight trip to the cabins at Stub Stewart in February, I was getting the itch for more bike camping. I even wondered if 2022 could be similar to my 2012, where I had lots of overnights and tours. But besides a... Continue Reading →
Peering through the window of the old University Park branch, 11 July 2022. Minolta Hi-Matic 7s/Kosmo Foto Agent Shadow 400 Monday July 11th was a hot day, with heat much like we've seen in the week I am typing this (July 27): a high somewhere between 95 and 100 F (35 to 38 C).

My first Bikes and Film Cameras Club Ride happened last July. I didn’t intend for the second one to happen a year later, but that’s how it goes sometimes. On Saturday July 9th we had a good crew of a dozen who met me at the Paul Bunyan Statue in the Kenton neighborhood of North Portland. There was a good selection of cameras, from toy to advanced, 35mm to medium format to large format on Instax. Unfortunately I did not check out and record everyone’s cameras, though next time I definitely will.
The ride itself was just a hair under 15 miles (24 km.) The route concentrated on the water’s edge of the North Portland Peninsula. I forgot to record the route on Ride With GPS, but here are the stops after Paul Bunyan:

The Canon Snappy K camera is a circa 1988 compact 35mm point and shoot. It is very basic and simple to use: a 35mm f/3.8 fixed focus lens that focuses from five feet away to infinity and a flash that’s there if you need it. Besides motor drive, that’s about it for features. And that’s all you need to start shooting film!
This kit with camera is just $40 plus shipping. Please note that it does not include batteries, but since they are common AAs, you should already have some. (Don’t worry, film is still included!) You can purchase this camera here.
Photos from this camera can be found in the dynamic flickr album below.
And don’t forget, the Bikes and Film Cameras Club with Pentax IQZoom 928 kit is still available for $60 plus shipping! You can buy that here.
