Sign Up to Lead an MMR in 2019

Hello, lovers of Midnight!

We’re switching things up this year.

We know there’s a lot of interest in leading the June Midnight Mystery Ride, which is historically our largest ride of the year, so we’re going to start a system where we pull from the previous years’ leaders for the following June’s leader.

In other words — if you would like to have the opportunity to lead the 2020 Pedalpalooza ride, you must lead an MMR in 2019.  Your name will be entered in to a hat and pulled in December 2019.  You will then have until January 1st to accept the challenge of leading the 2020 Pedalpalooza MMR, or ask us to pull another name from the hat.

We still have nine months open this year, so if you’re itchin’ to lead a ride, sign up quickly by sending us an email to indicating your desired month(s).

Here are the current open months for 2019: February, March, May, July, August, September, October, November, and December.





January Ride

Join us for the first ride of the year.

Ride meets at Gold Dust Meridian (3267 SE Hawthorne).

At midnight, we ride!



December Ride – DECEMBER 14th

For our last ride of the year, a return leader has stepped up.  His last ride did not disappoint.

Meet at Yamhill Pub – 223 SW Yamhill St, Portland, OR 97204

Bring your favorite sticker to add to the wall and don’t stand around on the MAX tracks out front…

ALSO – start thinking about 2019!  Do you want to lead a ride?  If so, drop us a line.

At midnight, we ride!



PS – we accidentally posted on the Shift calendar that the ride was December 7th, not the 14th.  We’re hoping the error gets corrected quickly…  Hope we didn’t throw anyone off too much!

November Ride

Fear not, lovers of Midnight.  We are, in fact, hosting a ride tonight.  So…  tell your friends!  We’re meeting at the Low Brow Lounge (1036 NW Hoyt St, Portland, OR 97209) and riding at…  MIDNIGHT.

Be sure to come in and support this local bar.  It’s a classic.



October Ride

Tonight we meet at Liberty Glass (938 N Cook St, Portland, OR 97227).  We love this place because of its outdoor seating.  Go early to support this great little bar.

At midnight, we ride.


September Ride

This month (9/14) we’ll be meeting at the bar attached to Le Bistro Montage (301 SE Morrison St.).  If you’ve never been there before — look for the restaurant with a door on the corner of SE 3rd and Morrison.  You’ll be *under* the Morrison Bridge.  The bar is right next door on 3rd.

At midnight, we ride.




August Ride

Meet at the Barlow Tavern (6008 N Greeley Ave) at 11pm. Come in for a beverage. At midnight, we ride!

Tonight your ride leader is encouraging you to bring camping gear, as he believes he’s found a great place to sleep outside.
