What are you doing on Saturday? Don’t have any plans? Well, I got something for you! And after a week and a half of off-and-on rain, Saturday October 30th looks like it will be a sunny day, with a high around 57F/14C. Great riding weather! So why not join me on the East Portland Cemeteries Ride?
When it comes to cemeteries on the east side of the Willamette, everyone knows about Lone Fir, and many people know about that one at NE 57th and Fremont. While they are nice, this ride will head to much more obscure burial grounds which you may not know existed!
Join me for a lovely casual cruise where we will check out anywhere from four to six of these graveyards. All of these graveyards are within two miles (either west or east) of I-205.
We’ll stop plenty of times, have a refreshment, etc. break somewhere en route, and after the ride we can get food and libations. No one left behind.
This ride is more about the ride and checking out things. Don’t expect an immaculate and exquisitely detailed tour at each cemetery, I don’t have all that. (If you want that, I hear they do a good job at Lone Fir.) Ride not a loop, but will be transit accessible.
Limited to 24 participants. Register for free via the Eventbrite link here. The start point is transit accessible in NE, you’ll get the exact location after you register.
