PSU Farmers Market Ride – 10:00 at SE Clinton & 41st (SE)
Grab your groceries and treats in style as you support local farmers and build community in one fell swoop. Always great people on this ride and what better way to break the ice on new friendships then breaking fresh bread together on a bike ride?! More info here.

Carry Shit Olympics – 10:00 am at Colonel Summers Park (SE)
Zack is back for another batch of loaded bike lunacy. Register and take part in one or all of the events taking part throughout the day. Bring your cargo bike — or remember that everything is a cargo bike as long as you’re carrying something. More info here.

Sunday Parkways SW – 11:00 am to 4:00 pm (SW)
PBOT is back with our city’s premiere open streets event. Walk or ride your bike on a fun 3.5 mile loop between Gabriel Park and Spring Garden Park. See the amazing new bikeways on SW Capitol Hwy and be enchanted by the magical neighborhoods and green streets of southwest. More info here.
