How much fun have you had on your bike this summer? If the answer is, “Not enough” or “I could use some more” then it’s high time you signed up for Tour de Lab, a tour of all four Lucky Labrador Brew Pubs. This event benefits DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital.
Don your costume and get ready to hit the road with thousands of other fun-loving bikers. At each stop along the way, you’ll earn your dog nose and dog ears to flaunt as you circle the city.
Over the years, the riders have started to bring out their best ideas for costumes with themes of dogs and things dogs chase (think postal carriers, squirrels and of course cats).
ABOUT THE ROUTES
The well chosen routes (19 flat or 40 hilly) offer a delightful tour of Portland along mostly low-traffic neighborhood streets. Cruise along, chat with your friends and take in the sights. The course clearly marked so you don’t have to focus on a map, you just focus on having fun.
A CATERED FEAST
At the finish line, a gigantic hot dog finish line feast awaits, catered by Pine Shed Ribs, voted Best BBQ by Portland Magazine. The mesquite smoked hot dogs and fresh garden burgers are accompanied by all the best fixins like housemade old-school sauerkraut. Your lunch is served with a free beer poured into a pint glass you get to keep.

– Mesquite Smoked 100% WA Beef Hot Dogs

– Homemade Old-School Sauerkraut
