Cross Crusade: Portland International Raceway Series Race #7 (Portland)
November 14, 2015 at 8:40 am
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

Portland International Raceway is within the city limits of the City of Portland and is located just west off from the I–5 Freeway (exit 306–B), about 6 miles west of Portland International Airport, 2 miles south of Vancouver, Washington and about 3 miles north of downtown Portland. (For those of you that haven’t raced the PIR infield course, you will come in the main raceway gate.)
