Riding – Those not wanting to race can still get on course. Street Sprints p/b BIKETOWN will kick off at 2:30. Sign in at the registration tent. This is a free event and we will have cash prizes and plenty of products to give out to our participants. You can also join our Portland Criterium Sportif Pedalpalooza ride. This free ride will start at the Salmon Springs Fountain at 4:30 and ride down to the race, ending with laps around the course. We will have prizes for the best and most fun non-cycling athletic outfits.
