It feels like spring has finally arrived and we can sense the bicycling buzz out there.

This week’s guide kicks off with three events tomorrow, including a bonus wonky one during your lunch hour.

Friday, March 15th

PBOT Lunch & Learn — Addressing Equity through Citywide Pedestrian Planning — 11:30 am at PSU Karl Miller Center (SW)
The product of two years of work, PBOT is proud to share their PedPDX Plan. This Lunch & Learn session (note new venue!) is a great way to get more intimate with its findings and recommendations. More info here.

Afghan Cycles Film Screening – 8:30 pm at Regal Fox Tower (SW)
This film is well-timed for Women’s Month as it chronicles the oppressive societal conditions Afghani women face for the simple act of riding their bicycles. More info here.

Dropout Bicycle Club Monthly Ride – 10:00 pm at Colonel Summers Park (SE)
The Dropout’s are one of the many fun-loving bike clubs that roam our streets. More info here.

Saturday, March 16th

Slow Poke Ride – 10:00 am at Wilshire Park (NE)
Join the Portland Wheelmen Touring Club for a 25 mile (or so) jaunt up to Kelley Point Park and then over to Madrona Hill Cafe near the Willamette bluffs. More info here.


Kidical Mass at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade – 10:30 am at Sellwood Park (SE)
Join your local chapter of Kidical Mass to revel in the Irish spirit at this traditional parade. Don’t forget the green decorations on your bikes! More info here.

Sunday, March 17th

Dirty Circles – All day in Woodland, WA
The OBRA road racing season has begun! And what better way to kick things off than with a relatively nearby venue with a flat course that will help shed those cobwebs out of your legs and get you excited for competition once again? Race categories tailored for all fitness levels. More info here.

Luck of the Irish Ride – 12:30 pm at Vera Katz Statue on the Esplanade (SE)
Join experienced ride leader Tom Howe for a ride based on the classic 1948 movie “The Luck of the Irish” in which the main character has a life-changing encounter with a leprechaun at a magical waterfall. More info here.
