June Ride


Follow the mystery leader to a fun mystery destination.

This ride happens every 2nd Friday.

Tonight meet us at Hopworks N Williams Pub and Beergarden (3947 N Williams Ave, Portland, OR 97227).

This 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.

May Ride

Join us at The Hilt (1934 NE Alberta St) this evening for the May edition of the Midnight Mystery Ride.

We encourage diehard fans to meet up tonight and figure out how you all can help make the Pedalpalooza MMR safe and fun for all.  Ask your fellow riders if they’ll be joining us in June to help cork streets, encourage people to clean up after themselves, etc.

At midnight, we ride.

See you all tonight!


April Ride

Happy Spring!

Tonight’s ride departs from The Vern (2622 SE Belmont St, Portland, OR 97214).

Plan on the possibility of having a mid ride dance stop…  (Bring yer dancing shoes!!)


At midnight, we ride,


March Ride

This month the MMMMMMR is the Maria & Mark March Midnight Mystery at (Bar) Maven (6219 SE Foster Rd, Portland, OR 97206).  Head through the bar to discover their large patio.

There’s no additional store or beer stops, so bring your drinkables, snackables, and wearables. We’ve got a great end spot planned where there will be a fire. The fire will be bigger if you bring a Duraflame!

At midnight, we ride…


February Ride

This evening we’ll be embarking on our midnight journey from Paydirt at 2724 Northeast Pacific Street.
There’s tons of bicycle parking around the back of the Zipper Building and if you’re truly bundled, you could easily hang out at their outdoor tables before the ride.
We have nearly every ride spoken for this year, save two — September and November.  We would very much like to encourage more women to lead — so if you’re planning on heading out tonight, consider inviting a lady to join.  Let her know it’s easy to lead a ride herself — all she has to do is send us an email showing interest and we’ll get her all of the info she needs.  There’s lots of time to plan rides in September/November…
At midnight, we ride!

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 midnightmysteryridePDX@gmail.com 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
