Portland's popular Monday night race series resumes for its 11th year at the Portland International Raceway (PIR) beginning May 7 and running through August 27. Beginners and experienced racers are encouraged to attend. There are separate races for novice masters men, novice women, experienced masters men, and open women.
The flat and wide 1.9 mile loop is closed to traffic and features high quality pavement. Total race distances vary each week according to daylight, number of racers, and weather. Racing starts at 6:15pm.
Racers who avoid traffic on I-5 by bike commuting, carpooling or taking MAX to PIR will receive a US$1 discount off their entry, and race organizers will donate $1 to the local Bicycle Transportation Alliance.
