A Bike Pass allows one bicycle to park inside the Pickathon grounds. Biking is lowest climate impact option you can have and so we want to encourage everyone to choose this option by making it free as well as well as providing support through guided rides from Portland, bike transportation maps, and onsite bike racks inside the grounds where you can securely lock your bike up.
We’ll be planning two guided bike routes from Portland where you can bike with fellow festival friends to the farm. Our bike guides will be there to help lead the way, we’ll haul all your camp gear to the festival so you don’t have to worry about a thing, and then after the festival ends, we’ll take all your gear back to the starting locations of your bike routes.
Join a Ride
Join this curated and cultured group of bikers to pedal your way to the Pickathon venue via human power. Our friendly, knowledgeable biking crew will offer you a guided bike ride to the farm as well as offer transportation of your camping gear so you can have an easy breezy outing on your bike. Expect to ride about 12-13 miles on moderate hills, mostly flat urban bike paths, with access to Spring Water Corridor and some busier 2-lane roads. A good working bike, helmet and lock are essential components to get to the farm and secure your ride. We have a stable of bike racks at the farm to secure your bicycle once you are at the venue.
