Back-to-back bike events at Pioneer Square

LiveStrong Ride with Lance Armstrong

[He’ll be there in spirit.]

Portland’s “Living Room,” will be packed with cyclists on Wednesday. Pioneer Courthouse Square will be the venue for two big bike related events.

First up will be the City of Portland’s Bike to Work Day celebration. From 7:30 to 9:00 you can sample fine (and free) continental breakfast (must have your bike to eat!), and revel in the sunrise with other cool commuters. The BTA’s Executive Director Evan Manvel and Bike Gallery owner Jay Graves are both scheduled to speak.

Don’t forget to join one of six neighborhood rides leading into the Square. See more details here.

Then, from 12-2pm, the OHSU Cancer Institute will host their Livestrong Day Celebration. You can hear a speach by Lance’s Doctor, listen to live music by Big Bing Theory, register for the upcoming Livestrong Challenge (July 30th), or enter to win free stuff.

If you’re into Spinning, there will be a free Spin class offered by 24HR Fitness (RSVP to

curt, I’m pretty sure it’s Big Bing. It says so on the flyer.
