Remember the Circulus mini-velodrome? It’s the 132-foot circumference wooden track and former art project that was purchased by local bike company Portland Design Works.
Given the interest in Circulus, it’s turning out to be a brilliant $3,500 marketing expense. In a few weeks, PDW will pack up the track and ship it to Las Vegas, where it will be a centerpiece on the sprawling floor of the Sands Convention Center at the Interbike bicycle industry trade show .
But before it leaves Portland, there is big fun to be had. Behold Portland’s first-ever indoor, head-to-head bicycle pursuit race…
Roll over to the PDW Mothership at 15 NE Hancock this Saturday (6:30 pm if you want to race, 8:00 pm if you just want to watch). The party is being hosted by Yakima Products and will feature DJ Amanda Sundvor. More info on PDW’s website.
