To celebrate our 10th Anniversary, we’re taking a night to celebrate the sport that changed how Portland bikers enter Fall. No longer are we holed up in our houses dreading the dreary weather. Cyclocross, equally entertaining for spectators and participants, makes two-wheeled party magic happen, rain or shine. Tonight we showcase a program dedicated to the relentlessly creative spirit of cyclocross, paying particular homage to our hometown Cross Crusade race series, widely regarded as the best in the world.
