(Sorry this is a bit late in getting posted).
Here’s your Pedalpalooza menu for today:
METRO-WIDE KAITEN-ZUSHI RIDE
NW Naito Parkway at Couch (Japanese American Historical Plaza, Waterfront Park)
1:00pm, Leaving promptly!
An eating ride so big, one municipality could not contain it. Featuring multi-modal option (MAX express to Hillsboro). We’ll ride locally, but nosh globally.
Visit kaiten-zushi joints (where the sushi rolls around the place and you grab what you want to eat) in Washington, Multnomah, and Clackamas counties. Bonus: Will include ambassadorial visit to ZooBomb Century.
Not for the faint of spoke or xenophobic of stomach. BYO hashi & cash.
SW Salmon and Naito Pkwy (Salmon Street Springs at the Waterfront)
Break out of your two-wheeled rut! Learn how to ride a unicycle, teach someone else how to do it, or just strut your stuff. Lessons will last from 1:00 to 2:00; then we’ll ride around downtown and frolic in the outdoor fountains. (If you want to do the ride, you will need basic unicycling skills, which generally take about a week to learn. Email me about private lessons.)
Bring a swimsuit, a towel and a unicycle if you have one! This is gonna be great!
CHOCOLATE IS MY FRIEND RIDE
608 SW Alder (Moonstruck Chocolates)
Today we bike for chocolate! Yum. There will be 3-4 scrumptious stops, surely enough chocolate to stop the cravings for awhile. Bring cash.
NORTH PORTLAND TRAILS RIDE
Portsmouth & Willamette
This ride will tour the marvelous trail network in North Portland. With 15 miles of trails it’s possible to get in a great ride with hardly any cars to be encountered. We’ll take a relaxed pace tour of the Peninsula Crossing, Columbia Slough, Marine Drive, and Portland Road off-street paths. Great fun. After, we’ll find a good place to have a beer.
ALE DRINKERS RIDE
NE 33rd and Killingsworth (Concordia Ale House)
Moderate pace bike ride for those who appreciate a good ale after a good ride. We’ll meet outside Concordia Ale House and enjoy a moderate paced ride to Blue Lake via the Marine Drive bike path. After a stop at Blue Lake, we will return to Concordia Ale House for a well deserved Ale. In honor of smart riding, “helmets are required”.
