Hello, folks. Pedalpalooza, Portland’s annual Bike-Fun Celebration, is back! After COVID drastically altered it last year, we are now back to group rides, but with precautions, like masking up. And this year it’s June, July, and August vs. just the month of June.
As I mentioned last month, I’ll be partaking in the festivities. But things will be different than before. For the most part, all my rides will require registration (free, via Eventbrite) and will be capped at twenty.
After the last true Pedalpalooza in 2019 I thought that I probably wouldn’t do a Three Speed Ride during PP anymore. It seemed to be dwindling returns in the sense that either participation on these rides were low, or if there were decent numbers, less than half the bikes that showed up qualified as three speeds. Well, times are different. I’m itching to do another Three Speed Ride here in Portland, perhaps you are as well?
So join me on Monday August 2 at 6 Pm for a 10 mile loop meandering around the Willamette River. This ride is open to all bikes that have a internal hub gear of three, four, or five speeds. You do not need to be a member of Society of Three Speeds to be on the ride. If you are not a member, you can purchase a membership on the day of ride for the special price of $20! This is a casually paced ride, no one left behind . We can get food and libations afterwards. Limited to 20 participants. Register on Eventbrite
I hope to do another Three Speed Ride in October. Look for info about that one by September. Hope to see you on the August Cruise!
