Nestled in the heart of downtown, amid the tranquil North Park Blocks lies Portland State University…OK, OK, you already knew that.

But…did you know they’ve got a thriving bicycle club and team that competes in the NW Collegiate Cycling Conference? Besides being a strong team that boasts NWCCC champions in two categories, they’re active in the local bike community and have a great website full of useful information.

As a former collegiate racer myself, I can tell you that riding with these guys will be much more fun and inclusive than trying to keep up with your local club or bike shop ride. Bottom line: collegiate riders know how to have a good time and they always regroup and are considerate of all levels of riders.

So, if you’d like to join them on their weekly rides, check the schedule and meet them at the North Park Blocks in front of the Millar Library. For more information contact team President McCaegor Byrd.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive. That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. If you see an inconsiderate or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan and Michael
