Tonight at the Portland Building a panel discussion is being held to encourage women to participate in bike racing.

Women for Bikes, a loose-knit volunteer group of advocates, hope to show that anyone can dive into racing and that it’s a whole lot of fun.

The panel will include: members of the Sorella Forte cycling club; Dani Dance, organizer of the Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships; and officials from the Oregon Bicycle Racing Association (OBRA), who will demystify the rules and regulations of racing.

If you’ve ever been curious about racing, but are perhaps a bit intimidated or in the dark about it, this would be a great event to attend.

Here are the details:

    Tonight!, 6:30-8pm (doors lock at 6:40pm)
    Portland Building Room C – 1120 SW 5th Ave (Between Main and Madison)
