Great rides this week in Oregon, both at the Active Transportation Summit in Salem and here in the city. Last night was the annual Bike to Blazers event and large groups of neighborhood riders cruised on two wheels to the “green game”. We helped organize an indoor roller races event with some Cyclocross friends Team Beer. Gold Sprints is the name of the game and riders race on stationary bikes while their progress towards a distance goal is projected on the wall in real time. Great crowd participation ( especially near the beer garden ) and we even got to witness a fantastic display of sportsmascotship in a race between the Portland Farmers Market Tomato and the Kaiser Permenente Dalmatian. Awesome video here. Thanks again to Team Beer!
The Japanese cherries are blooming on the waterfront and our neighborhood green-ways are filling with cyclists once again. visiting Portland? consider a afternoon city tour or state wide route . Friends visiting? We have affordable rentals and you can show them your favorite path.
