August Ride

We’ve got 9.98 excruciatingly supreme miles to devour. Should take the riders around an hour or less. The route will have a few gentle ups, some worryingly fast downs, and mostly chilled out flats. Expect the route to be a wee bit technical including: potholes, streetcar tracks, sidewalks, paths, some route obstructions, total darkness, bottlenecking, dismounts, Portland’s smallest swinging luxury gate, multiple parks, two flights of stairs, and a bad ass lovely stretch where the group should be absolutely Ninja quiet to help keep the Rozzers at bay. We shall wind our way through Portland to the end point coated with history and debauchery galore. Care should be taken when locking up bikes at the end point. Nothing should be left unattended that is not locked or bolted on. After riding most everything Portland has to offer over the past 24 years, this is probably in the top 3 best rides Portland has to offer. Start point: Rogue Hall, PSU. Look for Bill Murray. If I could choose a theme, it would be Revenge of the Nerds: Alpha Betas vs. Tri-Lambs.
Rogue Hall
1717 SW Park Ave  Portland, OR 97201

At midnight, we ride.

July Ride

This month’s ride leaves from

Maui’s @ 3508 N Williams Ave.

You’re in for a treat!  This ride is longer than usual.  Be prepared for a 10 mile ride.

Remember:  Summer rides are larger, so please be certain *not* to assemble outside of the bar, especially in the street.  Instead, collect yourselves in the empty parking lot across the street or head into the bar and support the local business before the ride!

Hurray for warm, summer nights.

See you tomorrow.

At midnight, we ride!

June Ride – @ Marathon Taverna on WEST Burnside

Happy PEDALPALOOZA!

The Midnight Mystery Ride happens EVERY MONTH.  If this is going to be your first ride–WELCOME!  Please read this before your join us:  midnightmysteryride.wordpress.com/about

A few tips:

  • If you’re not used to riding in groups, alcohol is *not* going to help
  • Nobody likes an a-hole.  If you see someone being inappropriate on the ride, please intervene
  • Corking *is* encouraged, so please help keep the ride flowing
  • Bring a bike map–you may not know where you end up
  • Don’t swerve or stop abruptly in front of anybody, especially those riding tall bikes
  • Pick up after yourself

The ride this month is leaving from the Marathon Taverna:  1735 WEST Burnside

Please do not amass on Burnside.  Go inside the bar or hang out quietly on a side street/parking lot before midnight.

At midnight, we ride!
