The spectating is awesome. These guys come whizzing by, inches away from you…and as darkness falls, things get crazy.
This year they’ll have live music, a beer garden, a food court and free helmets for kids until 7:30 (provided by Health Net). Come down and support a great local race. You can even cheer on Portland’s very own Doug Ollerenshaw (just heard Doug will not be there), a member of Team Health Net (seen here in last year’s race).
The event kicks off at 4:30 and the Pro race starts at 8:00. I’ll see you there!
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 (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with class and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
