I think it's time for this community to step up to the next big thing: moving someone by bike caravan. It's de rigeur in Portland

So are you moving soon? Volunteer yourself and let's make it happen. I'll bring some beer for the post-move social hour.

I don't think we're going to have a single move day, though we're moving about a mile with no hills, so we'd be a great candidate. It'll be the week of August 18th, though, I'll keep you all posted.

"We" have already done this. The Proteus crew moved someone by bike almost two years ago, I believe.

Talk to Rod Smith -- he's sort of a pro at this!

Where's the YouTube video? Methinks without that, it did not happen.

Two years is a long drought. One guy on the Portland video said he had helped with four or five of them. Can we go from one a decade to several a year?

Hey, you're right! Here's the thread. I must have been away on vacation at the time or something.

Let's do it again, then!
