This is a call for all unicorns of all ages, in the City of Portland (and beyond) to gather together at our enchanted green patch: the greenest grass found behind the gazebo at Peninsula Park Rose Garden. As unicorns absorb our energy through the sun, we will be ready to spread our wings and soar through the streets of Portland by mid afternoon!
New this year:
— New starting location!!! Please meet at Peninsula Park in NE- this will allow for a lovely, mostly downhill route all the way to the Pride festival!
— I will be updating this event page with the exact route map before the event for those that will have to join us later or leave early.
— We will be leaving promptly at 2pm! Join us earlier around 1:30 fo...r pre-ride dancing and other fun.
— Day of the ride: Last year, organization was tricky with 100s of frolicking, beautiful unicorns and ride stops! This year, listen for the megaphone at the start of the ride for helpful info about the route and timing of stops!
***WE WILL BE STOPPING FOR ICE CREAM MID WAY THROUGH THE RIDE! CASH ONLY FOR THIS ACTIVITY PLEASE!***
Not everyone will be able to see us, since we are magical beings, but we will be able to see each other! Unicorns barely touch the ground- some even say they merely skim it, so finding the trail of a unicorn is almost impossible… so be sure to arrive on time!
Ride as bare as you dare- just roll around in sparkles or paint your body in rainbows if you want! The shimmery and more glittery, the better. Bike decorations highly encouraged.
Meet at 1:30 to sparkle up, fly out at 2. Free!
Let's celebrate our love of everything diverse and magical on bikes for Pedalpalooza and Pride! Ride will be family friendly, mostly flat/downhill, around 4-5 miles and will be ending on the west side at the Portland Pride Festival on the waterfront! Tell your all your sparkly friends! Sidewalk chalk, dance jams, candy, and hoof high tens provided!
