It’s almost the weekend! I’m still out of town so BikePortland remains on vacation mode until Wednesday (8/30). I should have some MADE Bike Show coverage coming shortly and maybe a few other quick stories. I hope everyone had fun at Bike Happy Hour last night.

Here’s our weekly selection of rides and events worth your time.

Looking forward to the MADE show, but let’s keep calling it South Waterfront, not SoWa.

Yeah, it reminds me (not in a favorable way) of “SoDoSoPa” (from “South Park”).
