Surf the Portland heatwave
Fucking Portland! Save the heat. It’s suffocating there.
I don’t have much time as I’m going on vacation tonight and have family in town, but wanted to share a little video I made yesterday on my bike in the hottest part of the day. I went to my neighborhood to try to find people who were riding bikes and ask them what they were doing and what it was like to ride in the record heat.
And of course, today (Sunday) is even hotter. And Monday will be even hotter. I have deep and dark feelings about what this heat means to us in a larger context, but for now let me share this video and ask if you can tell us how you coped with it. .
I know many of you were on the Loud n ‘Lit ride last night. Thousands of people gathered for this annual celebration. It looked amazing!
Do you ride in the heat? How did it go for you ?
While I’m here let me say I’m heading to Florida for some time with my family for the next 10 days. I’ll check back every now and then and we have a few stories planned. Contributor Lisa Caballero will moderate comments while I am away. If you have an opinion or a story to share, please send it to us and I will try to publish it.
Please be careful there. This heat is no joke.
