TANK OF DOOM TOUR OF PDX OIL PROFITEERS, North Park Blocks, NW Park Ave and Couch St (We’ll be close to the elephant–the one in the room.), 11:30am – 4:30pm, We leave the park blocks at 12 noon and return there between 4 and 5 PM.
Did you know that as the ice melts in the Arctic Sea and glaciers in West Antarctica slide into irreversible decline, there are many corporations still happy to drill away with business as usual, profiting from the pollution of drinking water, the fouling of the air, the trampling of the treaty rights of the indigenous peoples of North America, the destruction of regional ecosystems, and the fatal unravelling of the biosphere? You probably knew that. All the more reason to join the Tank of Doom as its specter haunts the NW Portland facilities of these profiteers. We’ll go at a slow pace.

CRITICAL MASS: PEOPLE, PLANET, PEACE OVER PROFIT , North Park Blocks, NW Park Ave and Couch St (Bronze Elephant), 5:30pm
Catastrophic climate change is already gripping our planet. But Portland is still clogged with cars, our rivers and rails are highways for fossil fuels, and our air continues to be poisoned by the worst polluters in the country.
We have no more chances. With our future at stake, we have no choice other than pedaling for People, Planet, and Peace over Profit.
Bring your bike.
PDX Bike Swarm And PDX Valkyries
GRANT PETERSEN RIDE , 3000 N Willamette Blvd (Meet at the dead madrona tree), 6:45pm – 9:45pm, We roll at 7. Bring lights to see the particles.
Do you like trusses? I never see them during the day, but at night I see particles in the beam of my headlight. Wool socks and Tevas would be appropriate. Same goes for flat pedals. Lugs are beautiful and strong. Shellac your cloth bar tape. Bells optional. Pace will be briskly casual. Bandannas recommended.
THE SPROCKETTES RIDE , Peninsula Park (700 N Rosa Parks Way), 7:00pm
Join us in hot pink & black as we celebrate 10 Years of The Sprockettes. This special edition of our monthy ride will take participants through Sprockettes history in a fun and interactive way. Bring something to stencil on, a flower or “bling” for Kiki, and your dancing shoes. Expect OG faces, music, shenanigans, skits, and a few surprises!!! The route is mini-bike friendly though we’ll move at an adult pace. Ride ends in SE.

For our 3rd year, this time we’re ENDING Pedalpalooza with a bang!
