For those of you not in the Portland area The North American Handmade Bicycle Show is this weekend. I was elated that it was also on Friday since I work weekend (the exact hours of the show). I look up ticket info and it turns out Friday is for press and industry only. It’s a pity but then I can’t afford one anyway. The good news is there is still plenty of fun to be had outside the show!
This weekend there will be plenty of bike fun,
Tonight is the Midnight Mystery Rides birthday and benefit ride for Leo Check it out here.
Saturday at Plan B (1308 SE 8th) there is a benefit for bikeportland.org that should be awesome. They have prizes and 2.50 New Belgium so I am going to be there. So if you see a fun looking fat girl feel free to say hi. info here.
There are a bunch of other things going on around town but these are the two that I’m going to rep. Look at the coverage on bikeportland.org if you want more ideas (roller races for frames, stuff like that).
Other upcoming events include some free workshops at Citybikes:
