Pedalpalooza Ride

Tonight’s ride will be the largest of the year.
If you’re a regular rider, please be on your best behavior; Go inside of the establishment prior to the ride to support them (there’s even a back patio!), ride with traffic in the streets, leave no trace at the end, 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 read the info below.  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.
Each month a new leader picks an establishment to meet at. We go inside, support the bar, and then at midnight we ride off to a mystery destination, following the leader into the dark.

1. Lighten up
2. Dress for the weather
3. We never said it was safe

THIS MONTH’S RIDE STARTS AT THE SLINGSHOT LOUNGE:  5532 SE Center St
It’s a little difficult to find, so just think — SE 56th and Foster.
When you find the place, please lock up your bike, and head inside.  There are games, a photo booth, well priced drinks, decent food, a back patio, etc.  Just be sure to be out and on your bike at the stroke of midnight, because we’ll leave you if you’re not ready to pedal.
At midnight, we ride.

We have leaders lined up for the next few months, but would love to get you on the calendar.  Interested in taking the reins for an upcoming ride?  Send us a message.

January Ride

Your leader says, “I have a temptation to call for harmonicas, kazoos, and hand percussion. People bring electrics…as long as we keep moving I’d enjoy that kind of noise.” So let’s not disappoint! Bring your noisemakers for extra new years merriment. Also, he recommends that you ride a bike with gears and would like to remind you that MMRs don’t do beer/snack stops, so stock up before you head over — you’ll want some treats at the end.

Meet at Roadside Attraction (1000 SE 12th) and enjoy one of the best patios in town.  Bring cash to support this local establishment.

At midnight, we ride!

December Ride

December’s ride meets at Community Supported Brewing’s scene workshop at 709 NE 74th Ave.  It’ll be a dry night hovering above freezing, but you won’t be cold for long!  We’ll stop for beer and land cozy, warm, and fed outdoors.

Be sure to head to the start location early so you can enjoy some homebrew with your leader!

At midnight, we ride…
