SLOW RIDE Link
Clinton Park, SE Division and 57th Ave Take Trimet (Next to the tennis courts and playground)
6:30pm - 7:30pm
Our streets should work for all users, not just those who can ride at 25 mph. People looking to start riding shouldn't have to purchase expensive carbon fibre bikes and be in peak physical condition just to keep up with motor traffic. Anyone should be able to ride their upright utility bikes around at their own pace without being in danger.

This ride starts at Clinton park. We will take to the Greenways and ride at our own pace to show people that cycling for transportation doesn't have to be a sporting event! Bring your heavy utility bikes, cargo bikes, bakfieten, or otherwise sloooow bikes and let's ride! This ride will be around 3 mi and end at Montavilla Brew Works.

This is a sanctioned BikeLoudPDX ride. Visit http://bikeloudpdx.org/

PORTLAND URBAN GRAVEL GRINDER Link
Pips Doughnuts, 4759 NE Fremont St Take Trimet (Or nearest parking lot)
CANCELED moved to Fall
Portland is notorious for having a large number of unpaved roads. Let's explore them!

Meet: Carb-load at 8:00a at Pips Doughnuts on NE Fremont
Starts: Roll out at 8:30a and no later.

Route Options:
Short - Cully, Gateway, Outer SE, Brentwood Darlington
Long - Add in SW Neighborhoods
Extreme - Ride up Forest Park road, and then back to town via St. Johns.

Pace: The ride is long, so we'll go as fast as gravel and legal traffic maneuvers allows (probably 15mph).

Helmets: Not required, but a good idea given we'll be on really bad roads.

Other Notes: GPX track made available pre-ride. This is a drop-ride. Be respectful of neighborhoods we ride through.

NO MORE 4-LANE ROADS! A BIKELOUDPDX PROTEST RIDE Link
Oregon Park, NE Hoyt St and 29th Ave Take Trimet
CANCELED Moved to June 17
BikeLoudPDX-sponsored ride in protest of pavement allocation. We demand more space for people, less space for machines! Four-lane roads create too many distractions for drivers and impede visibility. Crossing four-lane roads as a pedestrian or cyclist, even legally, is hazardous. The extra lanes should be used for bike lanes, bus-only lanes, parklets, wider sidewalks, anything but vehicle lanes. No more four-lane roads!

This ride is not for children and first-time cyclists; we will ride safely, but will be taking the lane on major arterial streets during rush hour.

On this tour, we will ride to or near the sources of major air pollution in order to better inform people about what is going on, how we go there, and what we can do to get clean air. Bring your signs, masks, costumes. We`ll bring good air-themed music. When we`re finished, we`ll stop in somewhere for a drink to chat unwind.

Thursday Night, the streets are ours. Come one, come all! Bring yr bike and your enthusiasm!!! We are going to RIDE, nice and easy in a big chill group. Slow pace, taking the main streets in the inner city, through downtown and around the main streets of N, NE, and SE. There will be a beer/snack/restroom stop near the end of the ride.

Shift is entirely volunteer-run, but still needs money to keep the lights on. Please consider donating:
