If your event is already on the calendar and you wish to edit it, you'll need to use the link given to you at the time of its creation. If that doesn't work, contact the calendar crew.

Shift facilitates pedalpalooza and is entirely volunteer run, but needs a little cash each year so we can pay our artists and keep the lights on. Please consider making a donation to keep pedalpalooza and beyond happening!

Skidmore Bluffs, Take Trimet (Meet near the bike with the wind chime on it)
11:30am, Ride at roughly 11:30a. Brunch starts at 9:00. Wind Chime Riders can gather any time between then and the start. Please allow time to ensure that you have a safe, reliably attached wind chime.
Put a wind chime on your bike and come to this ride! It's fun to ride a bike with a wind chime on it.

Gathering will begin at Brunch on the Bluffs, because it sounds dope and I want to go to that too. I will be the one with the wind chime on my bike. I will have a small number of chimes to distribute. Our ride will begin after brunch has been consumed and all riders are confirmed to have safe, secure chimes. Probably around 11:30, but like don't worry about it too much. We will enjoy some time on quiet streets, where we can be ourselves, in the majesty of our chimes, before joining Sunday Parkways to end at the Bike Decoration Station. It's a mild, minor affair glommed onto other, better planned events.

Putting a wind chime on my bike has made me very happy, and I encourage you to try it.

Everyone leads this ride to surprise your friends! Bring a friend's address in Southeast (or cross streets of their dwelling). Won't they be surprised when they find a gang of sweaty bikers on their lawn, or later find the gifts we leave on their doorstep! Bring them an extra token if you like.

Focused on Burnside to Powell, below 39th-ish, but we might venture farther. If you don't have a friend in this area, come anyway and you will soon!

Because you want to make bystanders say, "Whaaaat?".
Because you love unique rides.

First 24 riders to show up in costume get a free ice cold beverage. Best carolers win applause. Best costume and best decorated bike each win a sandwich, salad, or dessert from Palio Espresso and Dessert House (winners choose, ride organizer treats). Please mind the heat and design your costumes accordingly.

Portable speakers encouraged, especially to blast winter holiday tunes.

Ride at a relaxed pace for about one hour, ending our loop back at Ladd's Circle.
Free drinks & bike decorations! Prizes for best costume and best-decorated bicycle!
