It’s the big Fourth of July Weekend… what type of bike adventures do you have planned?
Saturday is the start of the Tour de France with the much-anticipated comeback of a guy named Lance Armstrong (perhaps you’ve heard of him?).
For those of you not in Monaco for Stage 1, check out the TV coverage for the next three weeks on Versus . If you don’t have cable (or can’t stand the reportedly all-Lance-all-the-time Versus coverage), other ways to follow the action are via Twitter from @TDFblog or BikeHugger’s TDF “Hub” also looks like a great bet for full (and interactive) coverage.
I know about 20 people who are joining the Cycle Wild bike camping trip to Big Bottom. My three ladies and I are headed for some bike camping of our own. We’ll join two other familes (that’s six adults and seven kids!) for a ride from Portland to Champoeg State Park.
Out at the velodrome, the Alpenrose Sixday wraps up tomorrow.
I also know many folks will grab the bikes and roll down to the Waterfront for the Blues Festival. If you go, remember that they’ve closed and/or re-routed many bikeways (including, to the ire of some readers, Hawthorne Bridge access in some places).
Enjoy the weekend, and share your bike fun adventures below.
