With a press release that exclaims, “The Portland “Snowpocalypse” can’t keep us from getting kids on bikes!”, the Community Cycling Center (CCC) has announced plans to hold a sequel to their annual Holiday Bike Drive this weekend.

The event will hope to bring biking’s goodness to more than 350 kids who couldn’t attend the original Bike Drive on December 14th, which was cut short by a snow storm. The CCC promises it will be “the same great event, just a little over a month later.”

The Holiday Bike Drive is the CCC’s largest event of the year and more than 1,000 volunteers have spent over 3,000 hours getting bikes ready for their new owners — kids from low-income families throughout the Portland region.

The event itself is a sight to behold; a veritable “circus of bike love” says the CCC.
