Imagine driving home after an amazing dinner and conversation when suddenly a pack of cyclists are zooming past in the opposite direction and taking up the entire neighboring car lane. And no, I'm not talking muscular men in cycle shorts and helmets.

Picture blinged-out bikes and your average everyday citizen. Some in costume. Some sporting a blaring boom box. Bikes glowing in the dark or pulsing lights. Tall bikes. Extra, extra towering bikes.

Then, traffic comes to a halt and the pack becomes a never-ending swarm of hootin' and hollerin' commuters on two wheels. So what do you do?

It's Portland. You roll down your window, blast Follow Your Arrow by Kacey Musgraves, cheer along and hold out your palm to high-five the cyclists that roll on by.

Nothing weird about a Loud'n'Lit bike ride. Just another typical Saturday night in Portland.

I love you just the way you are Portland!
