Friday Photo - Zoobombing

Zoobomber in Action
Portland, Oregon is well known as a hub of cycling activity. One of their stranger activities is called "Zoobombing." Participants, usually 20 to 40 years in age, ride children's bicycles downhill. The name came about because the starting point is near the Oregon Zoo. This sounds like the kind of activity that would be frowned upon by the police and local government, but not in Portland. The Portland Police Bureau say the riders pretty much police themselves. Riding begins at 11:00 PM on Sundays.

Here's a video of a zoobombing run:
