Hello everyone!

Let us help you make the most of these winter weekends. Check out this week’s selection of events…

Friday, January 14th

Friday Night Ride at Ladds – 7:00 pm at Ladd Circle (SE)
Bring lights and be respectful and responsible. Join every Friday night as folks cruise around town. At the end, the group will merge with the MMR. More info here.

Midnight Mystery Ride – 11:45 pm
Follow the mystery leader to a fun midnight mystery destination. The start location will be announced by the organizers on the same day of the event. “At midnight we ride!” More info here.

Saturday, January 15th

Rocky Point Saturday Session – 9:30 am to 2:30 pm at Rocky Point Trails (NW)
Help NW Trail Alliance build and maintain bike trails at Rocky Point. These sessions are small-scale work events that will happen on a weekly basis through spring. Come out and help create the future of Mountain Biking in Portland. More info here.


PSU Farmers Market Ride – 10:00 at SE Clinton St/41st Ave
An all-ages/all-abilities ride from SE PDX to the PSU Farmers Market to help support local farmers, bakers and makers of all kinds. This is a great opportunity to meet and develop community in a relaxed, informal setting.  Riders are welcome to leave at any point during or after reaching the farmers market. A post-ride adventure that is only loosely planned beforehand often follows – this weekend the ride will certainly meet with the BikeLoud SE/E ride. More info here.

Seltzer Squad Riding League Ride – 10:30 am at Paul Bunyan Statue (N)
This is a brand new club (organized via Strava) that will host moderately paced rides and provide a supportive space for people who are in recovery or who just want a space free of alcohol. Expect coffee and tea – but no beer! – at the start and end spots. More info here.

BikeLoud SE/E Chapter Meeting and Ride – 12:30 pm at Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade
This is the first one of the BikeLoud south east and east chapter 3rd-Saturday-of-the-month meeting-ride. Meet at the Vera Katz statue and then head over to Asylum for lunch / meeting / hangout time. More info here.

River City Bicycles Beginners Ride – 10:30 am at River City Bicycles MLK (SE)
This rain or shine ride is geared for folks looking for a chill 10-15 mile route that should take around 60-90 minutes. Please bring your bike, wear something bright, have lights, wear a helmet, and don’t forget a smile! More info here.
