Worst Day of the Year Ride
February 14, 2016
The Worst Day of the Year Ride is a beloved Portland tradition. Regardless of the weather, thousands of fun-loving cyclists grab their friends, don their costumes, and gather to wave their silly flags.
This year celebrates with all-new routes and rest stops. There is over $5,000 in costume prizes and a tropical, or polar, themed photo area to preserve the memories in 4×6″ color glossy photos.
Riders receive Dragonfly Chai, Nossa Familia coffee, Franz Bakery doughnuts, and KIND granola for breakfast. There are tasty treats at every rest stop: house fries at Ecliptic, Tamale Boy chips and salsa at Hi-Wheel, Munk Pack’s Oatmeal and Fruit Squeezes at Velo Cult and tater tots at Cornelius Pass Roadhouse. Warm up after the ride with delicious homemade soups from Laughing Planet Cafe.
