From volunteer coordinator Lily Karabaic:

This year the Pedalpalooza Kickoff Party/World Naked Bike Ride is predicted to be bigger than ever, and I need nearly 100 volunteers to make this event successful.

I’m still short about 20 positions, and the volunteer labor is vital to making the party run smoothly, safely, and allowing us to keep doing this crazy thing next year.


The Pedalpalooza Kickoff Dance Party and Portland’s World Naked Bike Ride are happening on June 13- The dance party will be at the old coffee warehouse, at 2181 NW Nicolai. This year’s theme is “Where the Wild Things Are”!

All positions include fame, glory, and free beer. Check out the full details on how to volunteer.
