Hopefully this rain lets up, because there are some great events planned for this weekend.

If you prefer packing your gear over fixed gears, then the Community Exchange Cycle Touring Club has a ride for you. They’re doing a three-day, self-supported bike camping trip leaving from Southeast Portland. I checked out the route and it looks like it should be a beautiful ride. Not to mention, it’s being led by the capable and knowledgeable Aaron Tarfman. More info here.
Still not excited? How about some human-powered vehicle racing? That’s right, the Oregon Human Powered Vehicle (OHPV) club is putting on their 7th annual Human Powered Challenge at Portland International Raceway. What’s a human powered vehicle? Think recumbent and then picture it with full aerodynamic fairings and then think pure, unadulterated speed. I really hope the track is dry for these guys!
