It’s that (beautiful) time of the year (Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland)

Hi everybody!

The good news is that it’s autumn in Portland, so there are many excuses to go out and explore the beautiful views around the city (or outside it). The other good news is that this weekend is full of great rides and events. From a warehouse sale with great deals on rain gear (that will probably offer some answers to Shannon’s recent inquiries ) and a good, old-fashioned swap meet, to another fun ‘cross race, and much more

Don’t forget that there are always more events to consider on our calendar. Have a great weekend!
