It’s nearly the weekend — and I’ve heard rumors of sun as well as reports of thunder, lightning, and hail.
Last weekend’s rain and high winds didn’t keep everyone indoors — hopefully your errands, visits, and bike fun won’t be deterred by any kind of weather in the next few days either.
– Tonight bring your kids to a special Kidical Mass event. Join the BTA to ride to City Hall in support of Safe Routes to School funding. Leave from several locations at 5:30, or join the crew at 1221 SW 4th at 6:30.
– The huge, iconic Portland Farmers Market at PSU opens for the year on Saturday morning. Fresh fruit, veggies, and people-watching — I can think of no other Portland event where so many people invest so much effort into what they are wearing so early on a weekday morning. Deepak Saxena of Shift is leading a ride from Peninsula Park at 10am.
Chime in with other events, reports from your weekend, and variable-weather riding tips in the comments.
Bonne chance, bonne aventure!
