Portland Cycling Culture / Pedalpalooza

Portland OR might not be THE most cycling friendly city in the US, but it is certainly the most fun with Pedalpalooza Bike Summer going on for three months!

I think that what sets Portland apart is its diversity of events. Different people have different things that they like doing, and there are so many rides, anyone can find something they like and have so much fun.
We also have stuff like this

Portland stands out due to its diverse range of events and rides, ensuring there's something fun for everyone, regardless of their interests.

Did you see a 4-person tandem in that video (0:25) ?? That's my ride. Silly having a 4 person tandem. But having that much fun should be illegal.


Portland baby.

Come to the bike happy hour every Wednesday at 28th and Ankeny. I'm usually wearing a Molteni jersey. I'll buy you a beer.

Has anyone ever seen the guy in the Darth Vader costume playing the bagpipes riding a unicycle?
