For the Birds | June 14th, 2020

The Flamingo Bike Ride

Look here for two flamingo-theme routes to ride on "For the Birds" day. Decorate your bike and yourself flamingo-style and get out for a ride! One route will go to the Flamingo House near Laurelhurst Park that has an ever-changing display of flamingos in the yard. The other route will go to the former location of Lambert Gardens, a sprawling garden in SE Portland for over 40 years that had a flock of live flamingos as well as a bunch of peacocks. More details can be found on the Facebook event page. Hash tags #PDXflamingos #ForTheBirds #PedalpaloozaPDX
