Eben Weiss, the inimitable “Bike Snob” behind the popular and eponymously named blog and book, rolls into Portland on Sunday. He’s in town for a signing and presentation at Powell’s and there’s a ride to the event being organized by Chris King Precision Components.
The plan is to meet at Chris King headquarters in Northwest Industrial and then shove off on a ride around 5:00 pm. According to sources, the ride will head up to the Rose Test Garden in Washington Park and then drop into downtown. Once downtown, Bike Snob and his fans will roll through the Broadway cycle track near PSU, then head east over the Willamette River before criss-crossing several bridges and heading back to Powell’s.
Here’s the (hilarious) ride flyer:
The signing and presentation at Powell’s begins at 7:30 pm (details here). For more on Eben Weiss, read his solid take on the Portland bike scene from a recent story in Outside Magazine and check out my Q & A with him from back in March.
