SLOW RIDE Link FF
SE Clinton St & SE 12th Ave Take Trimet
11:00am, Gather at 11:00, ride at 11:15
The phrase "stop to smell the roses" is never more poignant than during late spring in the City of Roses.  We won't actually stop much, but we will slow way, way down.  Take a break from Memorial Weekend, set your bike to its lowest gear--or better yet, bring a fixie!--and join us as we tour SE Clinton and nearby streets on this super-chill, relax-to-the-max ride.  Lollygagging and rubbernecking highly encouraged.  I guarantee that even those of you who commute on Clinton daily have never seen the street like this before. This ride is part of the Clinton Greenway 30th Birthday Celebration!

Since this is a Pedalpalooza event, feel free to come dressed for either the 1950s or the 1980s decade! The ride is predominantly flat, looping nicely around Mt.

Share-It Square was the first intersection repair in the world. It's also one of the only in Portland that changes it's image every year. This year's design was inspired by several themes important to the neighborhood over the past year. It was a turbulent year for many living near the square, with many people having near death illnesses or injuries, so this year's design is largely about  regeneration, healing, and the way our lives weave together through it all.

The geography and demographics of Portland are changing rapidly. With these changes come widening wealth inequality, dramatic increases in housing costs, increased traffic, and widespread feelings that city council is not doing enough to protect residents.Join me for a leisurely ride where I will talk about some of my ideas for protecting residents and increasing meaningful community involvement in policy and decision making. More importantly, I want to hear what you would like to see out of a city council candidate so we can build a platform together from grassroots.

SE BACK ALLEY BRAP AND BRAMBLE Link
Creston outdoor pool, 4454 SE Powell Blvd Portland, OR Take Trimet
3:00pm
We will string together sections of dirt and gravel back alleys of SE Portland to explore lesser known paths in this part of town.  This ride is more about seeing new back alleys and eating berries and less about speed.  Figure about 3 hour ride total.  Not a loop, but finishes in not too deep SE.  Plan on fun. 32C or larger tires suggested.  Braap.

Irving Park, NE 7th Ave and Fargo St, Portland Take Trimet
10:00pm - 8:00am, party all fucking night
Officially the biggest bike party of the year, that doesn't ask you to take your clothes off(but hey, I won't stop you). Original organizer Jon Dutch returns to join up with current leaders, to bring the craziest LOUD and LIT yet. A thousand plus people, getting as nuts as possible. Giant mobile dj station(complete with Portland's biggest djs), bring your own system, link up or do your own thing. Just get LOUD, get LIT! In any and every way which way that means to you.  We will be bringing back the beer bungee, plus some of the other things that have made this ride truly historic.
