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.

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.

Even with a bit of wet stuff that might fall from the sky this weekend, it will still be nice and toasty. Hopefully you have some time to get on a bike.

I was actually surprised at how thin the official event offerings are for the next three days. If you have an event you’d like to see below, drop us a line and we’ll add it to the list.

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

If you’ve got energy saved up from all the rain we’ve had, this weekend is the time to use it! The forecast looks very promising, and there just happens to be a ton of cool bikey things to do.

Not surprisingly, there’s a lot of love among this week’s events. The BTA will share stories of bike love, the Portland Wheelmen (and Women) will ride to the roses, and even the folks at Puddlecycle have a heart-themed ride. Make sure your outfit has some red in it and enjoy the ride(s)!
