Happy December, and welcome to the weekend. It’s probably going to be a cold and wet one, but luckily, the best antidote to winter blues is getting bundled up and riding your bike.

The Weekend Guide is made possible by our friends at Portland-based Showers Pass, who remind you that they’ve offered excellent and reliable rain gear and other apparel must-haves for 25 years!
