May is shaping up to be quite a month for bike events in Portland.

The City of Portland has already begun their festivities, the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA) will kick off their first-ever Walk and Bike Challenge this weekend, and now Portland State University has unveiled their slate of events for May.

PSU has teamed up with the BTA for the Bike to PSU Challenge. The friendly competition to see who can take the most bike trips pits PSU students against the elementary school students in the BTA’s Safe Routes to Schools program (that should be a fun after-party!).

Also in May, in addition to special events, PSU will offer free bike repair in the North Park Blocks every Wednesday, free breakfast for bikers on Thursdays, and lectures, forums, and clinics each Friday.

For more details, visit the PSU Bike Co-op’s website.

Last year I think it was the Mt. Hood Classic that had a crit near PSU in the park blocks, but this year it looks like it\’ll be along the waterfront instead: http://mthoodcyclingclassic.com/stagemap.htm
