ED'S MOVE BY BIKE Link FF
2027 N. Williams (just south of Tillamook) Take Trimet
10:30am
I'm moving about two miles north via a relatively flat route.

Please bring trailers if you have them, most of what I'm moving is in boxes with a couple large pieces of furniture.

Meet at 10:30 for food and coffee, load up around 11:00-11:30.

This would be a great beginner or first bike move!

BIKE-IN MOVIE (NORTH BY NORTHWEST) @ ZIDELL YARDS Link
Coe Circle, 3900 NE Glisan St Take Trimet (the Joan of Arc statue)
5:30pm, ride at 6:30
*PLEASE go to the FB page for weather updates and changes*

Let's take a short ride to the outdoor movie on the waterfront! Cary Grant-and-Eva Marie Saint-inspired outfits optional, but encouraged. Gather at 5:30 (perhaps for a quick bring-your-own-cocktail?), leave by 6:30 pm and arrive between 7-7:30 to get a great spot in front. Pace is leisurely, route should be easy.  Movie starts at dusk (approx 8:23 pm), so sit with the group and we'll pass the time taking bike selfies and swapping #afterpalooza stories.

Things to bring: picnic blanket, movie admission $$ ($8), and $$ for food carts (no outside food and drink is allowed once inside the gates), helmet, lock, lights for ride home.

HACKATHON - TECHIES ON BIKES Link
Esri Portland R&D Center, 309 SW 6th Avenue, Portland, OR Take Trimet
8:45am - 4:45pm
Shakespeare said, to == be || to != be; but that is not the question we will address. Whether tis nobler for us to implement an outrageously cool feature or take arms against a sea of bugs, the question we will address is, What happens when a whole bunch of techies go WILD on source code that helps people to have fun and bike? Of course, we are talking about the Shift Calendar, which is awesome, but reflects outdated technology. At this event, Techies on Bikes will come to the rescue and help bring the Shift Calendar into 2015!
