"For many years now, David Bowie and his music have loomed largely in Portland's bike scene
thanks to the annual Bowie vs. Prince bike ride.
The ride happens each year in June during Pedalpalooza. Hundreds of people show up in
elaborate costumes and make-up — some drawing inspiration from Prince, others from Bowie.
The two "sides" start separately and then meet-up for a huge dance party in the street fueled by
free spirits and loud mobile sound systems."
