Event details:

Cirque du Cycling Criterium, presented by Laughing Planet Cafe
Saturday, June 13, 2009,
N Portland, Mississippi Ave.

Cirque du Cycling, presented by Laughing Planet, is part circus, part bike street race and a benefit for Self Enhancement, Inc.

The whole event kicks off at 1:30pm with a free three-mile family ride to Peninsula Park. There is also a bike parade (3pm) (advance registration required) featuring all sorts of wild sculptural bikes: tall bikes, choppers, swing bikes and more.

There’s live music all afternoon, plenty of entertainment to watch and an evening criterium street race with a two-way racing right down the middle of Mississippi Avenue.

Come relax in the beer garden, bring your bike, settle into your lawn chair, peruse the shops of Mississippi and be awed by spectacular bicycle tricks and riding feats.
