Bike. Love. Stories.

Is all the grey weather getting you down? Do you get unexpectedly happy when the sky turns bright? If so (or if not), you should check out the Portland Winter Light Festival. This year bike-related events are featured prominently. Biketown will place specially-lit bikes at stations near the start of the big parade near OMSI, Filmed by Bike will host an installation, you can get half-off a day-use bike share pass, and there’s a big bike parade!

We’ve got all the Winter Light Fest details and much more in this week’s guide…
