CAMAS CASTLE RIDE Link
IKEA, 10280 NE Cascades Pkwy, Portland, Oregon 97220 Take Trimet (Meet at the bike racks outside the main IKEA entrance)
10:00am
Pedalpalooza may be over, but the bike riding goes on! This 33-mile loop ride takes you from the Portland IKEA store over the I-205 Bridge to the castle in Camas, Washington. Yes there is a private residence in Camas that looks just like a medieval castle, complete with drawbridge and keep. It is not open to the public, so we will only be looking at the outside. Another highlight of the ride is the Lacamas Heritage Trail, which is a hard-packed 4-mile gravel trail for bikes and pedestrians along the shore of Lacamas Lake. Another section of trail goes through Lacamas Park with a bridge spanning the middle of Lower Falls. On the way back we'll ride through quaint downtown Camas and a fish hatchery.

FREE BIKE TOUR: BEYOND PORTLANDIA! Link
Everybody's Bike Rentals & Tours, 305 ne wygant Take Trimet
3:00pm
Hey! Do you know where you live?

Join Everybody's Bike Rentals & Tours on a FREE BIKE TOUR of NE Portland and learn about the too-often-untold history of this incredible neighborhood, the forces that shaped it, and the folks whose stories are at risk of being lost. You'll never look at NE Portland the same again!

Although Portland is now known as an artsy, progressive, foodie paradise, there's a deeper story hidden in plain site if you know where to look. On this scenic 2-hour tour you'll learn the fascinating history of NE Portland, from the first inhabitants over 10,000 years ago to the radically transforming city we see today.

We'll head down bike-lanes and back streets, giving you the scoop on secret murals, rich historic sites, goat farms, and more! We'll dive into the complexity of our collective history by exploring displacement, racism, natural disasters and the systemic inequities that shaped and define this unique city.

We at Everybody's Bike Rentals & Tours are committed to supporting our community, celebrating local history, and championing a bike-centric lifestyle!

THIS TOUR IS FREE TO ATTEND AND ALL DONATIONS GO DIRECTLY TO Self Enhancement, Inc. (SEI) IN NE PORTLAND!

Bring your bike or rent one of ours, (regular rental rates apply:pdxbikerentals.com/bicycle-rentals-portland/)

RSVP if you can so we know how many to expect. Tell your friends, and bring some water!  

We'll leave at 3pm from Everybody's Bike Rentals & Tours at 305 NE Wygant st, Portland, OR 97211. Thanks!

GOTH RIDE 3: GHOSTS OF THE COLUMBIA Link
Peninsula Park, 700 N Rosa Parks Way Take Trimet (Between the rose garden and the gazebo)
4:00pm, We'll leave when it feels right.
Come one, come all, clad in black and ready to goth. This year, we are going to explore the ghosts of the north. I have found a historic graveyard of gorgeous proportions, and plan to hop from park to park in North Portland. We will explore the borders of goth and industrial. We will picnic on the Skidmore Bluffs before returning 'home' to the Lone Fir.

We will start at Peninsula park, this year, and end at Lone Fir. The route is 13 miles with mild hills. I've laid the route out to avoid very large uphill climbs.

Bring your playlist of post punk, goth, goth-hop, and even industrial music this year!

Come explore new places and deaths of the Ghosts of the North.

Getting there:

Plan to meet at the Goose Hollow Max stop Saturday morning at 10. We'll load up cargo bikes into the truck, and then catch the train. The truck will meet us at the end of the Blue Line, and we'll ride 22 miles from there. We'll stop in Banks for lunch and grocer

EAST SIDE ALLEYWAYS BIKE RIDE Link
Palio Dessert and Coffee House, 1966 Se Ladd Take Trimet
10:00am
Join me for a fun excursion of Portland's east side, focusing specifically on alleyways. And what better place to start than Ladd's addition! This will be a meander around Portland's quieter streets and greenways.

Please note: Portland has hills. You might not notice them in your car, but you will notice them on your bike. This won't be a fast ride, but you should be capable of handling a little aerobic activity!

The ride should last from 2-3 hours and will stay in the east side. As for overall distance, I would guess in the neighborhood of 10 miles.

The theme is We Be Ravin' and we encourage creative rave attire. These rides are as much about costuming as they are about the ride and the music. Bring your A game! The jams will be geared toward the progressive trance genre (a la Above & Beyond, Oliver Smith, Arty, etc.).

We'll start gathering at 9 near the playground and leave around 9:30. We will be making a rations stop before ending at an undisclosed dance party location. Bring firewood if you have the capability!
