Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls of all ages…the world’s largest festival of bike fun is set to commence June 8-24th. That’s right folks, planning for Pedalpalooza 2006 has officially begun.
What’s Pedalpalooza? It’s two weeks of creative, fun, bike craziness that has happened every year since Portland hosted BikeSummer back in 2002. To get an idea of how big and amazing this event is, look no further than last year’s calendar, which included a Bike Kiss-in, a Clown House Circus, and an Atomic War Preparedness Ride just to name a few.
There’s always an official Kickoff Parade and the whole thing is capped off by the Multnomah County Bike Fair, a “one-day carnival of mayhem, music, a midway of activities and an arena of events.”
Ideas for rides and events are hatching all over town (here’s one of mine) and some of them have already been confirmed on the official calendar. If you have a ride idea, you can add it to the calendar using the new Pedalpalooza 2006 Event Submission Form.
If you can’t wait ’till June, browse through the tons of photos I took last year.
*Update: You can review 40 ride reports from last year’s event by browsing the Pedalpalooza ’05 category.
