A WARM SPRING-WATER NIGHT RIDE Link
Johnson Creek City Park, SE 21st Ave & SE Clatsop St Portland, OR 97202 Take Trimet (meet adjacent to the wooden bridge over the water)
8:00pm - 11:00pm
Have you ever wanted to ride the outer length of the Springwater Corridor after dark, but not alone? Then this is the bike ride to go on! It will still be light for the 17 miles out to Boring, but the 17-mile return ride will be in darkness. Some sections of the corridor are illuminated by adjacent street lights, while others are so dark the only thing that stands out are the eyes of the feral cat population reflecting in your bike headlight. Tuesday's going to be warm, but it will be cooling down by the time of this ride.

STRAIGHT EDGE RIDE Link FF
3 Day Rides, Hillsboro Max Station Take Trimet (Ride from Hillsboro to Vernonia trail. )
7:30pm - 10:30am, We leave at 8;30. I'll not wait.
If  bike life's so good and your so healthy then you should be able to keep up. Ride ends at Vernonia Oregon. You don't show then Drunks stink. This is a 3 day trip returning as group unless you can't hang your welcome to get picked up at State Park there. See you real peeps. Looking for Straight edge friends that only smoke weed. Booze hurt your health and they cause fights and aggressive actions. Drunks often don't get it.
But if we drink let's do wine and only a toast.

DOWNHILL-ONLY BIKE MOVE Link
My place., SE 62nd and Harold St Take Trimet
10:00am, Ya know. Easy going.
I need to move some stuff.  While I have bike-moved myself in the past, I've never had others help.  Silly, right?  Well, now's the chance for me to change that, and for you to get in a Pedalpalooza warm-up ride.  We'll be riding down 62nd, over to 52nd and then onto the Springwater to 55th.  After that it's a right, a right and a right and then we're there.  Total distance: 3.0 miles.  The ride does not (necessarily) return to Woodstock but the Springwater will be mere blocks away.  I'll figure out some appropriate refreshments.

ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA RIDE Link 21+
Yamhill Pub, 223 SW Yamhill St, Portland, OR 97204 Take Trimet
2:30pm
Boil your denim, marinate your rum ham, and fuel up on fight milk and grilled Charlies because the Always Sunny in Philadelphia Ride is coming back for the third year in all its glory.

As always, participants are highly encouraged to dress up as their favorite ASIP character for a chance to win fabulously crappy prizes. It's probable that a dip in the Willamette will occur at some point- likely at the end of the ride.

Meet at Yamhill Pub at 2:30, departure 30-40 minutes later. Route TBD. Stay tuned.

Love,
Your ride leader, Bird. AKA Sweet Dee.

THE SLOW RIDE Link
OHSU Collaborative Life Sciences Building, 2730 SW Moody Ave, Portland, OR 97201 Take Trimet (Meet by the Red Ball Sculpture)
3:00pm - 5:00pm
Guaranteed to be the SLOWEST pedalpalooza ride, meant for ALL ages, and the slowest of the unicycles, bicycles, tricycles, quadracycles, skates, rollerblades, boards, scooters or other wheeled contraption things.

Ride will be led by a Giraffe on a Giraffe Unicycle, and several unconventional craft.

We will do a very slow loop around the waterfront starting from OHSU going over Tilikum Crossing, lower deck of the Steel Bridge, around Salmon Street Fountain returning to OHSU.

This is the time to ride your big wheel, tricycle, clown bike, or small to medium sized unicycle. Small Children, Cats, Dogs and other animals are encouraged to participate.

Meet up at the Red Ball Sculpture at the foot of Tilikum Crossing and let's SLOW DOWN!

You don't need to do Soul Cycle to know biking is movement, rhythm, and improvising the way you move your body through your surroundings.

Wonder no more, work on your bike dance moves, and ride to Trivia with Rinna & Alex at Beulahland (21+), the proceeds of which will benefit Bikes for Humanity. Helmets recommended, and this probably isn't the best context to try to stand on your top tube for the first time.

Oregon politicians are calling for three large freeway widening projects: I-205, I-217, and I-5 through the Rose Quarter to "ease congestion." This isn't how to solve our congestion issues. We need to protect the Rose Quarter Transit center with less cars. We need more protected bike lanes. And we need ODOT to manage the freeways for more buses and commercial vehicles.

Join BikeLoudPDX as we stand up to fight freeway expansions. Portlanders oversaw the demise of the Mt Hood Freeway and the Columbia River Crossing, we have the power to stop this too!

I don't promise this will be fun, but it will be a good workout. 10 miles of riding with many staircase climbs thrown in along the length of the Alameda ridge.  Probably similar to last year's All-ameda ridge, but less professional. Bike scum welcome.  Due to the intensity & variable nature of ability, this will be a drop-possible ride, so bring directions, a bike you don't mind carrying a lot, and as little baggage as you're comfortable with. I will probably get dropped first.  Strava route here: https://www.strava.com/routes/5212017 or get in touch if you don't Strava. We can compare injuries and times at Velo Cult after the ride.

Tourists come through Portland in a complicated path that must wind past SW 3rd & Ankeny, where a tiny, porny doughnut shop has made an international splash.

We're going to discover how it is Portland's legendary tour guides get their fried dough fix. Our ride will experience doughnuts like people who have put in 100s of hours and dollars on their bikes, searching out doughnut shops and testing as many as we could burn off on the way home. Our 3ish-hour bike tour will stop at 3-4 doughnut purveyors with about 12 miles of biking. Bring cash.

1:00pm
Ride the classic 40-Mile Loop as a series of three bike rides, one a week for three weeks during Pedalpalooza. Come on one ride or do all three for the complete loop! This version of the loop is really 51 miles long, as the route has evolved from its original naming over 100 years ago. Each of the three segments is 16 to 18 miles in length, and the segments start and end at MAX stations to eliminate the need to ride to/from the start/end. Following creeks and rivers for most of its length, the loop is flat with no uphill sections.

This 1st ride starts at the OMSI/SE Water MAX Orange Line station and follows the Springwater Corridor to the Cleveland Ave MAX Blue Line station in Gresham.

Ride #2 is on June 16, and Ride #3 is on June 23

How many tree houses are in Portland?  A lot. Lets go ride past some. Maybe someone will invite us in for tea. We will definitely end up at the newest of them all....  A great time for the kiddos, but we may cover some distance.

GET LOST! Link
The Old Gold, 2105 N Killingsworth Take Trimet
3:00pm
We ride until we find a natural end point. Feel free to bail whenever you wanna go somewhere else.

Back for its 8th year, Get Lost! is a ride led entirely by chance. Dice are rolled to determine how many blocks to ride, and which direction to turn once we get there (odd total = R, even =L).

You never know what to expect. Since we won't be taking designated bike routes riders should be pretty comfortable in semi-hairy conditions, but dangerous or illegal routes will not be traveled.

Probably not a loop, but that's what we said the first year, and we (eerily) ended up in the exact place we started! Read about that year's ride here: http://bit.ly/2qY2TmQ

TEXAS TWO-WHEEL CRUISE Link 21+
Overlook Park, N Interstate Ave and Fremont St Take Trimet
4:00pm - 7:00pm
Are you an expatriate from the Lone Star State, by either choice or circumstance? Join other Texans-in-Portland on a chill ride through town. We'll honor our home country with games, prizes, and libations. We'll swap stories about BBQ and Big Bend, and we'll crank tunes ranging from Beyonce to Willie to Spoon to Stevie Ray to Chamillionaire to Selena. Ride is likely to end at the Landmark Saloon, possibly the most Texas bar in Portland, so bring some cash. Non-Texans welcome; not a loop, relaxed pace. Clear eyes, full hearts, no flats.
