We’re excited to announce Get Your Shift Together, our latest social gathering that will feature some awesome folks from Portland’s (in)famous grassroots bike group, Shift.
This Thursday (5/27), join us at Plan B (1305 SE 8th Ave) to learn more about what Shift does, how you can get involved (they need help!) — and most importantly — get the lowdown on the huge plans for bike fun Shift is cooking up for June. Yes, I’m talking about Pedalpalooza, that crazy 17 days of bike madness has well over 200 events already, including the world famous Naked Bike Ride, a kickoff parade, and of course the Multnomah County Bike Fair.
It all somehow magically comes together each year because a small, core group of people volunteer to make sure it does. They could use some help and it’d be great to find a few new faces to be a part it all.
We’ll meet at Plan B* enjoy some food and drinks, hear from some wise Shift elders, and generally have fun talking about how we can have more fun (on our bikes) in June. As luck would have it, there are some live bands starting up at 8:00. Hope you’ll join us!

I heard MCBF was cancelled cuz no one got a permit for Colonel Sumner park.
East county got some Shift-y bike love this morning! Thank you for bringing Breakfast on the Bridges to the hinterlands (I-205 bike path & Burnside) Shift, PDOT, and whoever else was there; you made a cold wet commute much brighter.
anon – MCBF is not cancelled this year, it is just on a different day/location.
Good that SHIFT staff are asking for help.
Numerous people don’t realize the background logistics that is required to put on and manage the World Naked Bike Ride, let alone the entire Pedalpalooza schedule.
Thanks to all those that make the effort each year to hose events.
Marcus, just a clarifying point about “staff” and Shift. Shift is a loose association of bike funnists. If you’re on your bike and you’re having a good time, congratulations, you’re a member of Shift! The word “staff” implies “paid work,” which just doesn’t happen with Shift. At least not that I know of (and I keep the books).
Okay thanks. Back to bike fun!
Boy, talk about hidden… Jonathan, doesn’t this rate front page exposure? I only found it because of your tweet.
I’m not sure I’ll be able to attend as I made plans early this week. Had I been informed earlier (with better exposure) I could have planned on attending this instead.
Sorry, my bad… I don’t know how I missed this as a last week front page issue.
