Portland Century Bike Ride in Oregon
 

Gigantic Bicycle Festival

The Gigantic Bicycle Festival packs so much of what we love all into one weekend: Bike rides, bands, bike builders, films, beer, performances, camping and wildly creative fun. The festival takes place in Snoqualmie, Washington August 22-24, but the ride starts in Seattle for a 100 or 77 mile cruise to the party (with shuttle service back).

It’s only $20 to just go to the festival, but we think the ride is an integral part of fully immersing yourself in this cool event. The course is a lovely meander to Snoqualmie that takes you through the wide open landscape east of Seattle and the quaint town of Carnation, then on through the Snoqualmie River Valley. You’ll experience some of the best relaxing riding possible on this ride.

You can go pretty flat if you choose the 77 mile route or go for the full hundo ride for a challenging hilly course. The two courses share many of the same roads – meaning you’ll be in a sea of giddy bikers snaking their way toward the weekend festivities.

This is going to be such an exciting event, and it comes to us courtesy of a creative arts organization, the Levee Breaking, who loves to put on creative endeavors. If you’ve ridden a ton on your own and you’ve participated in many of the Oregon-area supported rides, now it’s time to head north and take part in this intriguing event.

And the music? PDX faves Menomena and many others stock the bill; you won’t be disappointed.

    This looks VERY cool. I’m hoping I can talk some friends into going up there with me. We’ve been looking for something like this for a while. Just makes sense to combine bikes and music, especially in the Portland/Seattle area where we have tons of great bands and we love our music! Long Live Kurt!
