Pedalpalooza is an almost month-long celebration of Portland bike culture that occurs every June.  Like minded folks come from around the country and world to participate in many of the activities that occur in June of every year since its’ inception in 2003.  Events like the infamous naked bike ride, bike jousting, and the Bike-In Movie occur during this festival. It all culminates in the Multnomah County Bike Fair, a country fair styled event seen through the lens of bicycling.

Warning the video below does have nude bicyclists and may be objectionable to some viewers.  The hostel doesn’t promote this activity, it is only meant as informative link. (must be 18 years to view)

The Hawthorne Hostel is a great place to stay for the festival! Learn more about Pedalpalooza by checking out their webpage.
