about 30 bicyclists met up after the terry shrunk plaza rally ended, escaping the police cameras and riot-cops. we rode across the steel bridge and up through the max lines onto multnomah heading east. we headed into the parking garage of the lloyd center mall, and reclaimed the structure in the name of bike dominance. we screamed our way up to the entrance into the mall, near Marshall's, a good portion of the riders rode on into the mall, while the rest covered the entrance. we rode around the upper level of the mall, past the dazed, zombie consumers. when we were finally confronted by the security guards, we booked it out the closest exit, and swung back around to meet the waiting riders outside.
we took a left on 15th, and again onto broadway, where we took up the entire 3 lanes! we followed that all the way down to MLK, with no signs of cops. we took a left on MLK and clogged the lanes up entirely all the way over to Burnside, where we turned left, and immediately left again onto Grand, heading back north. we took the entire roadway again until we reached weidler, where we got split up. We overtook the wendy's parkinglot and waited to regroup. we dispersed from there, many heading for the event at Nocturnal. as we pulled out we saw a giant squad of motorcycle cops turning up weidler toward the lloyd center...too late piggies!
it was the best mass ive been on in years, as we were actually taking the road, not being corralled by cops. we were truly taking our place back in the center of the roadways!! and all the pollution-spewing monsters were held back, like it should be!
2 wheels good, 4 wheels bad!!!
