We’ve got a great mix of offerings in the Guide this week — whether you’re an experienced racer or just starting out on two wheels.
By the way, we need to find a sponsor for this and our awesome Calendar. If you want some great exposure for your business or product that also helps support our community and local journalism at the same time, get in touch! [Read more…]

One of the best things about our community is how people share what they know.
Over the next three days there are three events on our calendar that will get you inspired and educated about adventure riding – from regional touring to epic bikepacking trips. It starts with a Bikepacking 101 clinic tonight (Thursday, 2/28) at the Beaverton Bike Gallery.
Yes it’s cold and a challenging time to ride for some people, but our bike scene never stops! Check out our weekly event picks below…

Time to put together your weekend plans.
Whether you like cyclocross or not, you’ve got to be excited and inspired by the season of Team S&M CX cyclocross rider Clara Honsinger. She just keeps getting better and better. Last weekend at a very challenging UCI World Cup race she went from a start of around 40th place to finish 19th. 19th! That’s against the very best racers in the world. And she was the 2nd place Under-23 rider. On Saturday Sunday, Honsinger will look to close out her big season with a strong showing in the U23 race at the World Championships in Denmark. If you’re not lucky enough to be there in person, roll over to Breadwinner Cafe on Williams Avenue where they’ll open early to see the live feed.
And that’s just one of the great ideas we’ve got for you. Check out all of our upcoming event picks below… [Read more…]
