Things I have swerved around in the Rose City

This will be an ongoing list of things I have avoided while astride my bicycle in the streets of this fair town.

  • a perfect whole chocolate cake in the exact middle of the bike path
  • a diaper 30 feet away from the cake
  • many, many cars
  • many, many people taking instagram photos of the Tilikum bridge
  • probably poop
  • other cyclists going rogue on the bridges
  • a street painting in NE that I thought was a pothole
  • gift bags from Powells
  • shards of hand-thrown pottery
  • definitely poop
  • a stack of Red Box rentals
  • panties
  • broken bike locks (cable-lock-looking-noobs)
  • all the glass
  • A whole, intact box of crackerjacks (shoulda grabbed it for you madre!)
  • “road work” aka rectangular holes in the ground about 2.5 ft square and 2 feet deep.  don’t know what they’re for

In addition, here are some things I should have swerved around and didn’t:

  • 3 feet of standing water on SE Powell and 34th
  • pothole under the 3 feet of standing water on SE Powell and 34th

Expect more updates in the future.

 

For you a rose, in Portland grows [in the middle of the goddamn bike path]
