Pedalpalooza (brought to you by Shift)
Pedalpalooza is a 2+ week festival of bike events organized each June by Portland’s grassroots bike-fun specialists Shift. It originated from BikeSummer in 2002 and has grown each year into one of the most amazing celebrations of the bicycling anywhere in the world.
This all-volunteer extravaganza features over 100 rides and events all crammed into 17 days. The fun starts with a huge Kickoff Bike Parade through downtown Portland and ends with a roar at the Multnomah County Bike Fair. In between are naked bike rides, donut rides, bike jousting, Zoobombs, and oh so much more!
