Some July Bike Events

The Night Ride
Once known as the Midsummer Night Ride will be held July 7th. Riders will get glowing necklaces and tshirts, Tire Flies, a Disco Dance Party rest stop, a Filmed by Bike bike-in-movie rest stop (with hot popcorn!), and of course donuts at the finish line.
The ride benefits the BTA and runs on volunteer power – so if you can help out, theywould be grateful!
Volunteers get free registration, plus tshirts and donuts! You can check out the volunteer shifts online – almost all of the shifts allow you to ride the course – and you can even sign up to volunteer online.

I-205 Detour ride
On Friday, July 13th, TriMet is hosting a bike ride, a bike giveaway and a party to celebrate the opening of the I-205 bike path detour route. The ride will start near I-205 at 5:30 pm, and will end at the party at Clackamas Town Center. In addition to refreshments, they’ll be giving away a new Trek Lime bike from Bike Gallery, Pink Martini concert tickets, TriMet monthly passes, a Clackamas Town Center gift card, two entries into Cycle Oregon’s 2008 Weekend Ride, bike tune-ups, cycling club memberships, and more!
After the detour opens, if you have questions or concerns about it you can write to Diane Goodwin ( at TriMet, and she will forward them on to the right person.
