Take a Kid MTB Day – 9:00 am at Gateway Green (NE)
It’s a national holiday (seriously, it was established by Congress in 2004)! What more reason do you need to participate in this excellent excuse to ride with your kiddos out at the always-fun Gateway Green MTB park? More info here.

Parkrose Pedal – 11:00 am at Parkrose Middle School (NE)

Bike Swap Meet – 12:00 pm at Rose City Food Park (NE)
Clear out your used gear pile and/or pick up some well-priced items at what is shaping up to be a very solid swap. Vendor tables are $10 and come with one drink ticket! More info here.

Doesn’t the Weekend Event Guide usually come out on Friday? Or maybe I’m losing it.

It’s not a “SWAP”meet if you’ve to pay $10 for a “seller’s space.”

Why not just meet in a park and actually, you know, make trade or even barter offers.

If memory servers, I think there was once a time in Portland that it Swapmeets went down like that.
