Rev Phil – founder/curator
Reverend Phil has been a figurehead of the Portland bicycle community for over a decade. He has made it his mission to spread the joys of cycling to as many people as possible. Born and raised in Oregon, he championed Portland’s World Naked Bike Ride (now the world’s largest naked bike ride) as well as being one of the driving forces behind popularizing Hardcourt Bike Polo. He enjoys a variety of transport but loves touring on his Cross-Check, building/jousting/breaking tall bikes, and Free Geek, a non-profit organization that ‘helps the needy get nerdy’ by recycling e-waste and bringing technology to those left behind the digital divide.
Rev. Phil was ordained as a minister at the Universal Life Church in 1996 and is considered a Saint in the Church of Bicycle Jesus by Seattle’s Dead Baby Bike Club. He has a long list of unusual arrests involving bicycles and nudity. He was banned for life from Civic Stadium after running the bases naked between innings at a baseball game. He was arrested for stopping a car from crashing into his fellow riders at Portland’s 2006 World Naked Bike ride and electrocuted by taser for not having a bike light. In 2007 he created Bike Smut, and encouraged the Portland community of sex-positive bikers to make short films about bikes and sex to help spread a message of joy and liberation through sexuality and cycling. He has since travelled thousands of miles across North America and Europe converting people of all orientations to bike sexuality.
