Juggling, rollerblade camping & pasta neckties: Pedalpalooza picks for weekend 3

After a dose of classic Portland Juneuary on Thursday, this weekend is looking clear, dry and (especially on Sunday) downright hot. Get out on a bike before the summertime indicators get too high!

Here are a few particularly interesting entries on this weekend’s Pedalpalooza calendar.

Prop and Juggle Ride
“Jugglers, hoopers, poi peeps, staff spinners, and other prop manipulators get together and we will ride to good flow and juggling spots in parks. New prop spinners welcome.” Friday 6:30 p.m.

Bladepacking overnight
“You know, like bikepacking but with rollerblades. Fanny packs encouraged and backpacks discouraged.” Friday 7 p.m.


Little Lebowski Urban Achievers Ride
Check out their cycle of “reenactments of scenes of the movie at 6-8 parks throughout the city.” Friday 7 p.m.

Multnomah Falls Bike Hike
It’s just 30 miles and there’s now a bus to get you back home for Saturday night. Saturday 7 a.m.

Pasta Costume Ride
“GET OUT YOUR HOT GLUE GUNS AND DECORATE YOURSELF IN GLUTEN!” Followed by a “Get Sauced! party.” Sunday 4 p.m.

Thanks for the PP coverage and for choosing Bladepacking! Maybe now we’ll have more people than the Swing Bike Ride yesterday (3)!

Portsmouth Parkways! Meet at the Columbia Park playground on Wednesday @ 6:15, ride leaves at 6:30.

Portsmouth is a neighborhood with possibly more parks than any other neighborhood in Portland. And we will explore them.

Flat, slow-pace, no-drop ride. There will be snacks and a case of cherries, plus sidewalk chalk.
