It’s shaping up to be a beautiful weekend. Which is a good thing, because there are some compelling reasons to get out there and ride.

The big event of the weekend is the Build Less Bridge CRC Opposition and Alternatives Rally this Sunday at noon in Waterfront Park near the Morrison Bridge. A lineup of speakers including City Commissioner Amanda Fritz will inspire the crowd to work for alternatives to the proposed new 12-lane highway bridge in Portland.

If you are planning to bike to the rally, you can find out where meet up with other folks riding from your part of the area (or start your own ride) on this map

If riding is your sport, there’s a killer duo of events slated for the weekend.

On Saturday you can participate in the grueling De Ronde van Oeste Portlandia hill ride.

Then on Sunday is the Horning’s Hustle mountain bike race out near North Plains.

And if you’re crazy enough to do both you might win fame, glory, and a sweet headset.

Let us know what you do and how it goes.
