The weather will be splendid this weekend in and around Portland. What are your plans?

If you haven’t dreamed up an adventure on your own, there are plenty of races and rides going on. Some folks will head to the Coast Range for the Rapture, a grueling 70 miles of unsanctioned adventure where just finishing is an accomplishment. Others will join the Society of Three Speeds on Sunday for a “celebration of planetary gearing” on the Three Speed Ride. The BTA’s Alice Awards is tomorrow so the region’s bike advocates will get together to celebrate great accomplishments.

Whatever you end up doing, have a great weekend. Feel free to promote other events and share your plans in the comments. You can also share your thoughts on the week’s news if you feel like it.

See you on Monday!

NOTE: We love your comments and work hard to ensure they are productive, considerate, and welcoming of all perspectives. Disagreements are encouraged, but only if done with tact and respect. If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you.

    Tomorrow is the Ride Around Clark County (RACC) put on by the Vancouver Bike Club. It was my first supported ride and the longest ride I had ever when I started cycling last year. This year the wether will make it even better!

    Not an “organized” rider, but loved riding around town this weekend doing errands and getting to places without all the jacket, scarf, gloves stuff.

    That “decommissioned” bike corral mentioned in BikePortland’s most recent post on Street Seats has been back for at least a week.

      Specifically, the one on SW Broadway at Ankeny.
