For the second year in a row, the Portland Mercury’s annual Holiday Auction (and its saucy photo spread) entices would-be donors with several bike-filled gift packages. If you want to help a great local non-profit (Outside In) and show your true biking spirit, get over to their site and bid on one of them.

This year there are three bike-alicious packages to choose from:

  • Bike With The Mayor – Includes a ride and lunch with me and Mayor Sam Adams with a Patagonia messenger bag thrown in for good measure.
  • Mountain Bike Mania – Includes a guided trip along the epic Ape Canyon trail on Mt. St. Helens, a picnic lunch, and a bag of swag from Sellwood Cycle Repair.
  • I Like Bike! – The Merc. describes this one as “This is what a bike-nerd orgasm looks like.” Need I say more?

Bidding closes tomorrow (Friday) at 5:00pm! More info on these and lots of other cool items on

The bidding closes at 5:00 pm tomorrow!
