Welcome to your menu of weekend rides and events, lovingly brought to you by our friends at Hopworks Urban Brewery.

It’s quite a weekend ahead. The Naito Pilot Project opens up at rush-hour tomorrow and Filmed By Bike takes over the Hollywood area all weekend long. And for many Portlanders (including me!), Friday morning is the start of the grueling Oregon Outback, a 360+ mile ride (75% dirt) from Klamath Falls to the Columbia River.

Whatever is in your plans, have fun and enjoy the weekend.

Welcome to your menu of weekend rides and events, lovingly brought to you by our friends at Hopworks Urban Brewery.

We’ve got a full slate of rides and events so I hope you’re ready to roll.

Need new gear? Two bike swaps and a party at North St. Bags new retail location should have you covered. Want to support local business and remind Portland that Clinton is a bike-priority street? Then join the Bike to Shop festivities.

And of course if you just want to ride with friends old and new, we’ve got some tips for that too…

Welcome to your menu of weekend rides and events, lovingly brought to you by our friends at Hopworks Urban Brewery.

Can you believe it’s already Sunday Parkways season? This weekend kicks off the first of the five events. Whether you do it to celebrate Mother’s Day or not, grab your bike and roll over to East Portland to enjoy a seven-mile carfree loop with a few thousand of your fellow Portlanders. Who knows, you might just discover something new.

And have you seen the weather forecast? It’s going to be beautiful. We hope you’ve got something great planned. If not, perhaps our selections below will help you decide…

It really doesn’t get any better this. Spring has sprung, today is the first day of National Bike Month, and there are unlimited possibilities of bike events and adventures that await.

I’m headed north to Washington on Saturday for the inaugural Gifford Gravel 50. I’ve been looking forward to exploring the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and this route should be a perfect introduction.

What are in your plans? Whatever you do, have fun!

Welcome to your menu of weekend rides and events, lovingly brought to you by our friends at Hopworks Urban Brewery.

The forecast is a bit spotty the next few days, but you don’t let that stop you from riding do you? And if you do, we’ve got a few things in this week’s guide that are indoors (but you’ll still have to bike to them of course).

Our pick of the weekend is the big trail work party and campout that Portland Design Works is putting on. Imagine hanging out with a bunch of great people volunteering with the Forest Service to make awesome bike trails. Then imagine camping out afterwards and then riding the next day. That sounds like a winning combination to us.

Whatever you do this weekend, have fun! You’ve earned it. (more…)

Welcome to your menu of weekend rides and events, lovingly brought to you by our friends at Hopworks Urban Brewery.

I hope you’re ready to ride because the forecast for this weekend looks spectacular. It’ll start off with what looks like a big new night ride this Friday, joining up with the Dropouts and rolling into the night.

Whatever you do, relax and enjoy a few days off. We’ve had some intense and important conversations here lately and we need you to be fresh and ready for Monday.

The forecast calls for plenty of sun this weekend. Yes there could be some rain, but that’s what keeps things interesting around here.

Whatever your plans, we hope you enjoy the weekend and soak up as much of our beautiful spring weather as you can.

Welcome to your menu of weekend rides and events, lovingly brought to you by our friends at Hopworks Urban Brewery.

Looks like the calendar is a bit light this weekend. It is Easter weekend after all and lots of folks will just chill on Sunday with family and friends.

Then again, if Easter isn’t your thing, Sunday would be a great day to be on the roads given how few people will be driving.

No matter what you do this weekend, you’re probably sure to see a few people with huge bunny ears on their helmets. Of course here in Portland, we see that type of thing year-round so it’s really no big deal.
