This menu of delicious rides and events is brought to you by our friends at Hopworks Urban Brewery. Their support makes BikePortland possible.

This weekend there are three big sales to choose from so it’s a good time to get a jump start on your holiday shopping or fill out your riding wardrobe with a few key pieces. If you’re smart, you’ll make sure you have some great rain gear because we’ve got many more wet days ahead.

What are your plans for the weekend?

Here’s the weather forecast:

Just a heads up on buying those samples. They often are real samples and not ready for retail. So sometimes the seams won’t be taped on the jackets or the chamois will not be in the right place.

Just got back from the Castelli sale. Not as expensive as I anticipated.
