The sun has sure been nice, but we could use some rain. We should have a bit of both this weekend.

Check out our selection of things to do.

Saturday, February 29th

Stub Stewart Dig Day – 9:00 am at Stub Stewart State Park (Buxton)
Join NW Trail Alliance to help keep the freeride MTB area of Stub Stewart in tip-top shape. Excellent volunteer opportunity. Bring your bike if you’d like a post-trail work ride. More info here.

Fix-it Fair – 9:30 am to 2:30 pm at Floyd Light Middle School (SE)
Do yourself a favor and check this event out. Full of excellent resources, including an all-season bike maintenance clinic hosted by PBOT and free bike repairs from Bikes for Humanity. More info here.

Tracklocat 2 – 12:30 pm at Retrogression (SE)
Unsanctioned, urban racing at its finest. I saw photos of the first one and it looked super fun! More info here.

Junior Racer Meet & Greet & Gear Swap – 1:00 to 4:00 pm at TriTech Bikes (SE)
Come out and help support junior track racing programs at Alpenrose Velodrome. Bring some cash for raffle tickets, used gear to share, and maybe your dancing clothes if you want to really have fun! More info here.

Hello, Kitty

Remember when the Worst Day of the Year Ride was on the worst day of the year? They should probably rename it “The Nice Spring Day Ride”.

Aloha Megan, and congrats to you both. Sorry I will not be in town for what will likely be an old school epic SHIFT2Bikes bike wedding …
