The Weekend Event Guide is sponsored by Abus Bike Locks. Thanks Abus!

What’s on your list this weekend? The weather looks a bit iffy, but you never know how it’ll end up so you might as well plan to ride.

If the national news has dampened your mood, let me make two suggestions: Evalyn Parry’s SPIN, a show about the bicycle’s impact on women; and the two trail work days on Saturday where you can do something to improve your community. And please support the Showers Pass Warehouse Sale on Saturday. They advertised it with us and we’re grateful for their business!

We aim to promote bike safety and accessibility, and to inspire biking as a alternative to fossil fueled travel within Portland.” More info here.
