Welcome to your menu of weekend rides and events (lovingly brought to you by Hopworks Urban Brewery).

If you're looking for something to do on Saturday, we've got a ton of options for you to consider; from a running/mountain-biking race to a mechanic course and of course the legendary De Ronde ride. Or if you're feeling lazy or just need a day off the bike, there's a big blowout sale where you can gear up for summer.

Whatever you do, keep your eyes on the sky and pack a jacket because we're supposed to see some light rain throughout the weekend.

Have fun!

Weekend Event Guide: Carnaval, climate change, history, racing, and more

Friday, March 28th, 2014

Hope you're ready for another great weekend of bike events and rides in and around Portland. In this edition of our guide, we've got quite a diverse selection for you. From racing (both off-road and on) to culture, fun, and education. It's truly amazing how many worlds open up when you get into bicycling.

And I've added a special, non-weekend bonus event because there's something on Monday night that was definitely worth including.

I could not be happier that the weekend is coming. Not only because the forecast calls for warmer temps and lots of sunshine, but because I've been sick all week battling a head cold that I just can't shake.

Enough about me... What are your big biking plans? We've got a great mix of offerings on the menu below. Take a look, make some plans, and have a great weekend!

Welcome to the weekend!

Spring is starting to bloom around Portland and it's time to take full advantage. Thankfully, there are plenty of fun rides and events to get you inspired and on your bike. Speaking of which, did you know that the number of bike trips over the Hawthorne Bridge yesterday — 6,597 — was the highest number since October? Yep, the bikeways are filling up and that's a great thing.

Whether you want to ride in a group, explore a new place, volunteer to improve bike access for others, or just kick back and watch some movies — we've got a great selection of rides. Check them all out below...

Thanks to Hopworks for
making this feature possible.

Welcome to (what's soon to be) the weekend.

Now that more normal weather has prevailed, I'd like to think we can get back to our regularly scheduled riding. While I'm dreaming about the days when I don't get either frozen and/or wet on a long bike ride, I much prefer the warmer temperatures and light rain we've had recently over the chillier weather of the past several weeks.

Take note, this weekend's guide includes two events that were rescheduled due to our freak ice/snow storm a few weeks ago.

Get your calendars out and start planning...

Thanks to Hopworks for
making this feature possible.

This is going to be a big bike weekend. With the recent storm keeping many off their bikes, we have a strong hunch that the events and rides in this week's guide will see strong attendance. (And as a bonus, check out what's happening tonight in the Mid-Week Event Guide posted on Tuesday.)

Sponsorship message ahead... Before you head out, please think about supporting the excellent brewpubs and beverages created by Hopworks Urban Brewery. They're not only a solid local company that cares about bicycling; they have also stepped up in support of BikePortland and they make this event guide possible each week.
