The annual six-race Mt Tabor Series, sponsored by River City Bicycles in Portland, Oregon, kicks off this Wednesday, May 30. Known as "Velo on the Volcano" the Mt Tabor Series is a circuit race that follows a paved loop around Mt Tabor Park in SE Portland.
Mt Tabor is a dormant volcano making Portland one of only two cities in the continental USA to have an extinct volcano within its boundaries; and cyclists get to race on it! Participants are faced with a challenging climb and a fast decent on a 1.3 mile (2.092km) course that is closed to automobile traffic.
