Pedalpalooza: 251 (mostly) Free Bike Events

PEDALPALOOZA | June 7-30 – Portland/Vancouver

Every city should be so lucky to have an festival like Pedalpalooza, when bikers come out in droves to revel in summertime cycling silliness. Over the course of 24 days, 251 mostly free events will jam-pack the calendar.

Food focused events abound, like the Austro-Hungarian Ride (9th), Food Cart Tour (17th) and reservations-required Epic Pizza Ride (27th)

Some rides are delightfully absurd like the Candlelight Can delight Vigil (12th) which honors now-closed drinking holes and offers an opportunity to share bar tales of woe. The Cute Warm and Fuzzy ride (11th) promises ice cream, cupcakes, slow riding, no hills and prizes. The Fake Mustache Ride (14th) simply yet hilariously celebrates the wearing of synthetic facial hair.

Hot tip: Pick up a printed version of the calendar, which will appear in the Portland Mercury on June 6. Pin it to your wall and circle all the events you want to attend. If you’re an over-worker, put the calendar above
your desk at work of a constant reminder of the fun to be had and why it’s important to clock out on time (or early…).
