Pedalpalooza is here! Today marks the start of Portland’s beloved annual bike festival with hundreds of events lined up over the next three weeks.
Tonight at 6:00 is the official Kickoff Ride, so I figured I’d go through my photo archive and pull out some of my favorites from the past 10 years. I love the Kickoff Ride because everyone is in such a hopeful, optimistic, and and excited mood. There’s a contagious buzz about all the fun stuff the month will bring and the ride has a way of restoring my faith in humanity, in bicycles, and our city all at the same time.
I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do…
This year’s ride starts starts at Salmon Street Fountain. Get out there and help make this the biggest and funnest Pedalpalooza ever!
