Portland Century Free Ride Registration

The Cirque du Cycling event on Friday night is a great night of bicycle street racing along N. Mississippi Avenue. 


The event features a cargo bike race, family ride, a high-speed bike race, a beer garden, free bike parking, and much more. 

Get front row action AND a free bib to the Portland Century bike ride on August 18th by volunteering to help out by setting up for the race and acting as course marshal on the race course. Note your volunteer efforts while watching a great evening of bike races saves you the $71 Portland Century registration fee. We will be riding that event in 2 or more groups. 

We would like you to get there by 5 pm (or as soon as you can make it after work). The course marshal duties last until about 9 pm. 

Cirque du Cycling takes place on Mississippi Avenue between Skidmore and Fremont. Bike parking is free, abundant, and located on Fremont right near Mississippi (next to Flavor Spot). 

You will report to the volunteer tent at the corner of Failing and Mississippi and look for either me or Chad Smoot.

    Not sure how we get the bib for the Portland Century for volunteering, but if there is someone who doesn't want theirs I have a friend who would use it. Thanks!

    Hey there I did not rsvp because Bob is going to drop his stuff off sometime on Friday night for Montana. If he does it early enough then I will come and help. Still oaky?

      Gwen, It's more than OK, we always love to see you. Don't stress about it though. If you need to prep for your trip, I think Chad has it covered fairly well.

      Thanks Gwen, I know we'll have fun at the races anyway. Barb & I have done this before and it's pretty cool to be 3 feet away from the pack whizzing by.
