SCOOBY DOOBY BOO! RIDE Link
ORHC Lot, 499 SE Caruthers St, Portland, OR 97214 Take Trimet (Meet in covered lot just South of Oregon Rail Heritage Center)
7:00pm
Here's a group ride that combines a spooky bike-in movie with a 6-mile ride to the Davis Graveyard. The bike-in movie is a classic 24-minute episode of Scooby-Doo titled "A Night of Fright is No Delight" which features a bit of Shaggy and Scooby riding a 4-seat bicycle with a couple of surprise guests. And all the guests for this ride will get a bag of Keebler Scooby Snacks to munch on while watching the Scooby mystery. We'll be projecting this underneath the McLoughlin Viaduct, so the viewing area will be dry even if it's raining. Costumes and decorated bikes are encouraged - Scooby-Doo theme optional! We will be riding past some Halloween houses in the Westmoreland area on the way to the Davis Graveyard.
