PEDAL POTLUCK PICNIC
3031 SE Hawthorne Blvd (Portland Hawthorne Hostel)
6:30pm
What’s better than riding bikes on a summer evening and having a picnic afterwards? The ride will be a casual one traversing approx. 3 miles and end in a mystery public “park” setting. The catch is the “park” will be a lesser-known and/or out of the way spot. Picnic will be potluck style, so please bring food and drink to share (preferably vegetarian/vegan), we’ll also stop at a grocery store along the way.
