Sunday, October 20th

Cyclocross Crusade #4 – All day at Portland International Raceway/Heron Lakes (N)
It’s time for the Crusade stop that’s as close to Portland as it’ll get all year. There’s no excuse to not check out the action, whether you’re racing or cheering. There should be plenty of mud to make things interesting. More info here.

Sandy Ridge Trail Work Day – 9:00 am at trailhead parking lot
Wet fall weather doesn’t mean the end of riding in our region; but only if you people like you show up and help keep trails in good shape. NW Trail Alliance will lead this work party that’s sure to give you good memories and great trail karma. More info here.

Slow Poke Ride – 10:00 am at Wilshire Park (NE)
Portland Bicycling Club will lead this ride that will explore north Portland neighborhoods. Expect a pace of 10-12 mph and a lunch stop. More info here.

Pumpkin Patch Ride – 11:00 am at Golden Pliers (N)
The wonderful crew at Golden Pliers will ply you with spiced cider and donuts before saddling up for a ride to Sauvie Island. They’ll have a trailer and cargo bike for extra pumpkin capacity. More info here.

Stay plugged into all the bike and transportation-related events around the region via our comprehensive event calendar.
