A match made in heaven: Showers Pass sponsors Worst Day of the Year Ride


Cyclist rides in the Shower


The 11th Annual Worst Day of the Year Ride on February 12 has quickly become Portland’s favorite wacky wintertime tradition. The rousing beats of the Last Regiment Drum Corps will send you off on an 18-mile odyssey around downtown Portland.  You’ll be kept warm and comfy at every turn with belly-nourishing treats including hot cocoa, doughnuts, organic fruit, chai tea, coffee, bagels, hot cider and much more.

Laughing Planet Cafe, experts in wholesome yumminess, is cooking up a finish line meal featuring local, sustainable and organic soups served with fresh focaccia bread.

Join thousands of other bundled-up riders as you laugh at the elements and circle the city on bicycles.  Want more of a challenge?  The optional 45-mile route loop traverses the west hills out to Hillsboro.  The ride is limited to 4,000 riders and it will sell out, so register early to ensure a spot on the hilarious ride. The event starts and finishes at the Lucky Labrador at 915 SE Hawthorne and is a benefit for the Community Cycling Center. MORE INFO:
