September Midnight Mystery Ride

It’s the first Midnight Mystery Ride of #afterpalooza. BIKE SUMMER may be over, but that doesn’t stop Team Midnight! We ride every month of the year.

Tonight’s ride will be led by Josh, who helps make the shift2bikes.org website tick!

Show up and give him a high five for all of the work he did this summer to help promote the 800+ rides we all posted for Pedalpalooza BIKE SUMMER.

See you at Creston Park (SE 43rd Ave & SE Rhone St.) near the playground at 11:45pm.

At midnight, we ride.

PS – there are a few rides happening leading up to the MMR tonight, namely Yohhei’s memorial ride and Val’s birthday ride. It’s going to be a beautiful evening, so… consider heading out early for some pre-midnight pedaling.

July Midnight Mystery Ride

Start location: The Lovejoy Fountain is in the center of a Superblock bordered by SW 4th, SW Harrison, SW 1st and SW Lincoln. It can be accessed by any of the pedestrian trails leading in between the buildings. There are apartment buildings and condos all around. Please DO NOT play music at the start location. Please let people know the start location differs from what was printed in the Willamette Week in June.

About the ride: July MMR is a birthday celebration for longboarder Patrick (1996-2021) who died in a freak accident last August. There will be multiple outdoor stops at places he frequented for beverages, fun and games. There will be a store stop. Surfaces will be as good as Portland can manage with an end spot close to a MAX line. Skate and fixie focussed, but all self propelled modes welcome. Let us celebrate the diversity of our community in memorial!

The first half will ride close in, beer stop, then play stop.

Second half will have more distance, but still mostly good surfaces and long board/fixed friendly.

Then there will be a second park/store stop (sadly there are no 24 grocery stores anymore) before the end location which is near a MAX for early morning return.

June Ride

Follow the mystery leader to a fun mystery destination.

This ride happens every month on the 2nd Friday.

This month we meet at Laurelhurst Park (east side of the pond, near César E. Chávez Blvd) on June 10th. This month’s leader stepped up and led a ride this past winter when the scheduled leader had to bail due to the WORST WEATHER WE’VE EVER HAD for an MMR. The planned leader couldn’t even bike down their driveway due to the massive amount of snow and ice. So this hero showed up last minute on their fat tire bike and lived to tell the tale. This month’s ride will be much more pleasant, even if it does drizzle a bit. Trust us.

This ride will be the largest of the year.

If you’re a regular rider, please be on your best behavior; Ride with traffic in the streets, leave no trace at the end (in fact… feel free to bring a trash bag because there’s already some trash onsite…), keep the music down through neighborhoods, give people 6 feet of room while riding and hanging, etc…  Please also help us kindly cork the streets.

New riders — Welcome!  Please charge your phones, dust off your maps, pump up your tires, grab your front and back lights (set them to “steady” mode), and bring whatever else you need to be comfortable (rain coat? beverage? friend?).  It’s gonna be a good night…

We ride 12 months out of the year on the second Friday of the month. We are the longest-rollin’ nighttime ride in Portland, Oregon. Heck… maybe in the world!

Each month a new leader picks a place to meet at and plans a route. Then we meet and ride off to a mystery destination, following the leader into the dark.

At midnight, we ride!
