The weekend is right around the corner and here are a few suggestions for what to do with it.

But first, a big “Thank you!” to this week’s Event Guide sponsor, the 2024 Pacific Trike Fest coming to Portland on June 15th. This event is a great opportunity to learn more about three-wheeled trikes with test rides of high-quality models and advice and tips from friendly experts. Tickets and info here.

One quick note: with Bike Summer in full swing you’ll want to check the official calendar for all the options.
