The 2016 Portland N.O.I.S.E Ride

North Portland holding it down in the yearly event that is the 2016 N.O.I.S.E Ride. Rules are meant to be broken and the only existing one is comrades who partake have to be upon a single speed rig. This event was put on for folks that couldn't make it to SSWC years and years ago. So the urban adventure rally churns through the streets like you are kid on your Hutch Pro Star BMX or a 30 year old looking for the best curb islands to launch after drinking fifteen beers. 

JLO the winner of the 2015 event organized quite the feats of strength for this years event. No bones were broken this year but many bags of Cinnamon Bun Oreos and Olympia beer were crushed. Bike-Buzkashi was had at the first stop with the black dice team taking the win after the bike polo folks decided that their smash abilities were working. Many other events occurred throughout stops in our fair haven of NOPO, and you will just have to come out for the 2017 event to experience the majesty of launching your hefty soul across the single track of the Willamette.

Last but not least. The Seattle crew came South and set up the mini battle drome at Peninsula Park where the battle of the belt took place for the 2016 winner. If anyone knows how to throw a party its when Portland and Seattle get together aboard a wooden track of shred.
