Bikes, Dancing, Mud, and Drums

PORTLAND, Ore. – When I started doing this bike vlog this summer I was afraid I’d run out of things to cover during the rainy season. Well, I was wrong. This weekend the Sprockettes hosted several bike events starting with a Dance Party Friday night that had bike dance teams (The Sprockettes, The B:C:Clettes, The Brakes) and live music including one of my favorite groups, Show Me the Pink. I missed Saturday’s events because I was working in Miz Kitty’s Parlour. But Reverend Phil has some videotapes from Saturday's events.

Sunday the USGP of Cyclocross came through town with some of the top riders in the world. The Last Regiment of Syncopated Drummers, rowdy fans, and hottubbers greeted them. Later that night the Cross Crusade held their awards party which was also very entertaining and included the LRS Drummers, along with fire dancers from Atyerre Vision, and acrobats from the A-Wol Dance Collective.

I took me a day just to recover from this rainy weekend version of Burning Man done Pacific Northwest style. “Don’t tell me this town ain’t got no heart. You just got to poke around.”

This is a quick montage some of the weekends bike events. I plan on doing more with the USGP race footage and the Sprocettes weekend separately.

way to go, I think the lighting for the dance was great. Glad you could make it out to such a wide variety of events, and film them as well!
