Intro To Cyclocross W/PBS & Women Bike (Portland)
September 8, 2016 from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
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.

Join Women Bike and Portland Bicycle Studio to learn more about cyclocross racing and riding skills.

It’s ok if you don’t have a cyclocross specific bike. Bring the bike you have, most road style bikes will do, and we will be riding on grass which is a more forgiving terrain. Portland Bicycle Studio will also provide some test bikes with them for you to try out.
