If you like to mix bikes into your Halloween festivities, you’ll have plenty of options this weekend.
Tonight there are two big group rides that will give you a chance to dress up and ride with other spooky cyclists. There’s the traditional Critical Mass ride that leaves from the North Park Blocks (Burnside & Couch) and the People’s Ride, which is a new ride that leaves from Ladd’s Circle Park (SE Harrison & 16th, event flyer here). Time to meet for both rides is 5:30 and they’re expected to meet up with each other at some point.
Then on Saturday their are two more options for the 21 and over crowd. The folks from PUMP are doing night-time trail ride, “complete with masks, costumes, scary music and possible surprises on the trail.” It’s not happening in Portland, so check out their website for the details.
And how could I forget to mention the Halloween Festival at the Cross Crusade Series race out at Flying M Ranch? There will be a costume party, a bike “Derby of Doom”, bicycle petting zoo, and more. And don’t forget, everyone racing in costume will get $5 off their entry fees.
