Posted by on October 3rd, 2005 at 10:30 pm

Is it just me, or has the Portland State University Cycling Club shown some exciting signs of life recently?

They’ve just launched a really cool new website , they hosted a major track racing event last month, they sent a few guys to the big Interbike trade show to schmooze potential sponsors, and now they’re hosting a symposium called, “A Woman’s Perspective.”

Here’s a bit more about what sounds like a very interesting event:

“A Women’s Perspective” brings local speakers from all walks of life to give new faces to the image of cycling in Portland. All speakers are deeply involved with the cycling community in a variety of ways from activism to professional racing. Keynoting the event will be Jacquie Phelan, the first woman in the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame and mountain bike pioneer, she brings experience and inspiration to the halls of Portland State.

Go here for all the details.
