Hi everybody!

Tomorrow (Friday) is the big climate strike where youth leaders will march with hundreds of Portlanders to urge our leaders to act responsibly on the current climate change crisis. Bring signs, wear green, talk with others about the issues — those are all ways of helping!

Also this weekend the cyclocross season heats up with Vanport CX and there will also be chance to go on fun rides, like Corvidae Bike Club’s Alice in Wonderland ride. Check out our selection of the best events below and get all this and more on our comprehensive event calendar.
