This looks like it’s going to be fun. I’m planning on taking the train down, unless it turns out there might be a couple people who want to go, in which case I might drive. We shall see.
From the website:
OREGON MANIFEST will feature an unconquerable mix of custom framebuilders, bike-centric vendors, bike culture squads, and blowout parties, crowned with a Sunday cross race to bring home the glory.
OREGON MANIFEST is the collective vision of Portland, Oregon’s cycling and creative communities, who’ve come together to dream up and develop the most original, spirited and spectacle-laden boutique bike show in the nation.
Round trip with a bike on Amtrak is $74, and you can start drinking the minute you get on the train and sit in the dining car. Sounds like a winning strategy from here.
There’s some event going from 7pm to midnight I hope to catch, and then the midnight mystery ride which I’m told should be happening. Looks like good times to be had for sure. We shall see.
