Ride around town with other urban explorers and see some new perspectives on p-town - from above! Bring your sense of adventure. Acrophobes (those with an acute fear of heights) will not dig it. However, it's all safe enough - as long as you are relatively sober. No money required, unless you wanna get something at Departure before we leave. Warning - it appears to be swanky. BUT - 15th floor! I'll probably just drink ice water and try not to annoy the waitstaff. This ride will not disappoint.

Sound systems invited, kids welcome for the early part of the ride, but later on, the silliness may get too much for them. This ride is free, but we understand Starfleet Academy might assess penalties.

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).  We will try to establish a record distance before reaching a dead end.

No idea what to expect, but 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 I guess there's always a chance.

PORTLAND: 10 THINGS TO DO IN (UNDER) 24 HOURS Link 21+
Washington Park, 4100 SW Canyon Rd Take Trimet (Meet at the Max stop.)
2:00pm
The Time Travel City Guide for Portland lists 10 things that beg to become a Pedalpalooza ride.

Time says 24 hours... by bike I think we can knock that down significantly.   There will be beer, boobs, bridges, baked goods, bushes (Rose), books, some other B word!  Oh yea... BIKES.

Social pace, no one left behind, bring bucks for treats, teats, beer, and movie.   Due to the length of the ride, the phone number on this entry will ring to the ride leader letting you join up wherever the ride may be!

Great for visitors, and Portlanders who love Portland.
