The weekend is right around the corner and we’ve got a few ride suggestions for you.

Just imagine, you could have never explored Milwaukie (a great city just south of us) or the Columbia River Gorge before this weekend — and by Monday you’ll be an experienced veteran.

Check out this week’s menu of rides and events below. And have a great time out there…

Grab these summer days and squeeze real hard because you never know how long they’ll last. And another thing… it’s going to be hot this weekend so plan accordingly (as in remember the water and sunscreen!).

The last weekend of Pedalpalooza will end with a bang. Saturday’s World Naked Bike Ride promises to be a night to remember and there’s a big party ride the night before to get you all tuned-up and in the mood.

And of course Sunday Parkways is the perfect way to nurse your fun hangover. Come out and bask in the pride of a city that can celebrate its 50th edition of this open streets event.

Have fun out there!

Remember how I said last week’s relative quiet was the calm before the storm? Well the storm is here. Pedalpalooza is in full swing and we’ve got a tantalizing selection of rides for you to choose from this weekend.

The time has come for Portlanders of all ages, shapes, and colors to ride together in the streets in the name of pure, unadulterated fun. That’s right, Pedalpalooza is here. Starting Saturday and lasting through the entire month of June, there are hundreds of free rides to choose from. They’ll help you learn more about our city, about yourself, and about the people you share it with.

But this is Portland, and when it comes to biking, there are always options. If Pedapalooza doesn’t pique your interest, perhaps you’d prefer to race or do a big ride, or to expand your cycling horizons in some other way? As always, check the BikePortland Calendar where we list a wide variety of rides and events.

Have a great weekend no matter what you decide to do.

I feel like things are eerily quiet on the calendar this weekend. There are things to do, but my senses tell me this is the calm before the storm of Pedalpalooza which starts next Saturday (June 1st). But as I like to say, “Tis better to take one in hand then two in the bush,” (pretty sure that’s an old hunting maxim) so you should get out there now because you never know what will happen by next weekend.
