  • Mt. Tabor Race Series – A hilly 1.3 mile loop on Portland’s own ACTIVE VOLCANO!!!! …ok, it’s not actually an active lava spewing volcano… but that’d be sweet! Races run on six consecutive Wednesdays starting June 4th.
  • The Towards Carfree Cities Conference SeriesThe fundamental role of the conference is to share knowledge and assist the practical work of conference participants, whether it be organizing community events, promoting urban cycling, or building the carfree cities of the future.
