If you’ve been meaning to swing by Velo Cult, this Saturday will be your last chance to soak up its legendary atmosphere. Let’s give Sky and Anthony a proper sendoff!

And if VC hanging isn’t your thing, we’ve got a few other rides to tempt you with.

Friday, July 27th

Sunset Moonrise Ride – 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm at P’s & Q’s Market (NE)
The Urban Adventure League wants to show you the fun of that special time when the full moon rises the same time the sun sets. Expect an easy five-mile ride to a good viewing spot. More info here.

Saturday, July 28th

Slow Poke Ride – 9:30 am to 11:00 am at TriMet Park & Ride in Parkrose (NE)
Join members of the Portland Wheelmen Touring Club for this ride to the Troutdale General Store. More info here.

Beginner No-Drop Road Ride – 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at Western BikeWorks LoveJoy (NW)
Been wanting to start road riding? This is a great opportunity to check it out. Led by the knowledgable and nice employees of Western Bikeworks, expect a 1.5 – 2-hour ride. More info here.


Biking About Architecture – 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at Grand Central Bakery (NE)
Portland-based architecture buff Jenny Fosmire will once again lead this mostly-fun-but-also-educational tour of interesting houses in the Beaumont and Roseway neighborhoods. More info here.

Velo Cult Farewell Party – 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm at Velo Cult (NE)
A very bittersweet final bash at VC. After 12 years in business (six in San Diego, six in Portland), VC will no longer have a brick-and-mortar location. Come say thanks and raise a glass to Sky Boyer and his creative partner Anthony Borreno. More info here.

Sunday, July 29th

Zoobomb – 9:00 am at the People Bike Library of Portland (SW)
Hot summer nights are perfect for cool bombs down the west hills from Washington Park. Bring MAX fare and a good helmet. More info here.
