Memorial Day Weekend packed with bike events

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

North American Cycle Courier Championships

***Reference to an upcoming messenger event has been deleted by request of organizers.***

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!

Regarding the Exchange Cycle Tours campout we are keeping track of the weather situation. Currently there’s a 30% chance of rain. We are prepared for a small amount of rain, and participants should expect to bring raingear. If the chance of rain on Friday shows greater than 60% the event will be postponed.
Please contact Aaron@yourbodypower.org for last minute details.

While doing a scouting ride up to Mt Hood I was blessed to meet Tim and Barbara who were riding their gorgeous co-motion tandem. I told them that I was taking Marmot Road and suggested that it was a much nicer route, though I hope that they didn’t get too upset by the hills.
