Oregon politicians are calling for three large freeway widening projects: I-205, I-217, and I-5 through the Rose Quarter to "ease congestion." This isn't how to solve our congestion issues. We need to protect the Rose Quarter Transit center with less cars. We need more protected bike lanes. And we need ODOT to manage the freeways for more buses and commercial vehicles.

Join BikeLoudPDX as we stand up to fight freeway expansions. Portlanders oversaw the demise of the Mt Hood Freeway and the Columbia River Crossing, we have the power to stop this too!

SHIFT TO PEDALPALOOZA RIDE Link
director park, 877 SW park Take Trimet
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Have you ever wondered how Pedalpalooza happens every year...and did you know we have a team of programmers who work on the shift calendar and website.  There is a lot of rewarding volunteer work that goes on behind the scenes and we are recruiting for new folks who are interested in helping out next year and beyond.  Come on this ride and we will talk a little bit about the history of shift and try to find you a place to help out in the future.  We will end at a family friendly watering hole.  First round of drinks is on shift.  We will be done by 8 so you can check out other rides.

The cars and semis speed by overhead but real life takes place under the bridges. Come see who and what lives underneath, and while the vehicles overhead travel on toward suburb and tourist destination, what persists in the unseen spaces; learn more about how the bridges were built and what they replaced. Discover hidden places with their own special magic, where the grittiest (and therefore the best) of Portland conducts a separate kind of existence. This ride will criss-cross the Willamette and peer under bridges old & new.

Velo Cult, 1969 NE 42nd Take Trimet (leaves from out front on 42nd promptly at 6:07)
6:00pm - 7:30pm
I don't promise this will be fun, but it will be a good workout. 10 miles of riding with many staircase climbs thrown in along the length of the Alameda ridge.  Probably similar to last year's All-ameda ridge, but less professional. Bike scum welcome.  Due to the intensity & variable nature of ability, this will be a drop-possible ride, so bring directions, a bike you don't mind carrying a lot, and as little baggage as you're comfortable with. I will probably get dropped first.  Strava route here: https://www.strava.com/routes/5212017 or get in touch if you don't Strava. We can compare injuries and times at Velo Cult after the ride.

Tourists come through Portland in a complicated path that must wind past SW 3rd & Ankeny, where a tiny, porny doughnut shop has made an international splash. Rain, 100-degree shine or hail, the tourists fan out from the corner, a dozen or two prize Voodoo Doughnuts held like trophies before them. But Portland has so much more to offer! We're going to discover how it is Portland's legendary tour guides get their fried dough fix. Our ride will experience doughnuts like people who have put in 100s of hours and dollars on their bikes, searching out doughnut shops and testing as many as we could burn off on the way home. Our 3ish-hour bike tour will stop at 3-4 doughnut purveyors with about 12 miles of biking. Bring cash.

OMSI/SE Water MAX Orange Line Station, SE Water Ave and SE Tilikum Way Take Trimet (meet at the bike racks by Portland Opera)
1:00pm
Ride the classic 40-Mile Loop as a series of three bike rides, one a week for three weeks during Pedalpalooza. Come on one ride or do all three for the complete loop! This version of the loop is really 51 miles long, as the route has evolved from its original naming over 100 years ago. Each of the three segments is 16 to 18 miles in length, and the segments start and end at MAX stations to eliminate the need to ride to/from the start/end. Following creeks and rivers for most of its length, the loop is flat with no uphill sections.

This 1st ride starts at the OMSI/SE Water MAX Orange Line station and follows the Springwater Corridor to the Cleveland Ave MAX Blue Line station in Gresham.

Ride #2 is on June 16, and Ride #3 is on June 23

GET LOST! Link
The Old Gold, 2105 N Killingsworth Take Trimet
3:00pm
We ride until we find a natural end point. Feel free to bail whenever you wanna go somewhere else.

Back for its 8th year, Get Lost! is 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).

You never know what to expect. 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 that's what we said the first year, and we (eerily) ended up in the exact place we started! Read about that year's ride here: http://bit.ly/2qY2TmQ

40-MILE LOOP RIDE, PART 2 OF 3 Link
Cleveland Ave MAX Blue Line Station, 400 NE Cleveland Ave, Gresham, Oregon 97030 Take Trimet (meet at East end of the MAX station by the bike sharrows)
1:00pm
Ride the classic 40-Mile Loop as a series of three bike rides, one a week for three weeks during Pedalpalooza. Come on one ride or do all three for the complete loop! This version of the loop is really 51 miles long, as the route has evolved from its original naming over 100 years ago. Each of the three segments is 16 to 18 miles in length, and the segments start and end at MAX stations to eliminate the need to ride to/from the start/end. Following creeks and rivers for most of its length, the loop is flat with no uphill sections.

This 2nd ride starts at the Cleveland Ave MAX Blue Line and follows separated bikeways along the Columbia River to the Cascades MAX Red Line station.

Ride #1 is on June 9, and Ride #3 is on June 23.

Starts with a march through downtown (so invite your non-cyclist friends) then continues with a short rally followed by a bike ride. Dressing up in your "second line funeral" best is encouraged, but not required. Feel free to come as you are, but if you dress up, you'll be all ready for Dropout Prom.
