[Pedalpalooza runs from 6/8 – 6/24 and is organized by Shift to Bikes. View the full schedule here and get the latest ride reports here.]

Northeast steps up to the plate today with a bouquet of bike fun. The CCC is hosting two volunteer events, the Clownhouse is having their Bikini Bike Wash, and Tori will be rocking her Polo 101 class at Alberta Park.

Here’s a list of today’s action:

BIG BOTTOM DOUGHNUT RIDE
915 SE Hawthorne Blvd (Lucky Labrador Brew Pub)
8:30am
Show that even a WIDE-LOAD can ride a bike. Stuff your shorts with pillows, b-balls, or your own arse, and go for a ride. Don’t lighten-up, load-up. It’s bike fun afterall, and the MORE the bottom(s) on bikes, the MORE the mass, and the bolder & beautiful Portland will be. Also, there will be a spare tire toss.
