Halloween and ‘cross races go together like kool-aid mix and water, especially in Portland.
I love the Rubber to the Road series River City Bicycles is putting out. These videos profile some of the exquisite rides in the area, ranging from road to mountain, with the latest being the Thrillium trail, about an hour drive from Portland’s center.
River City continues their Cross Crusade video coverage with the race from Alpenrose.
Thanks to River City Bicycles for pulling this together!
“Gateway Green is an enormous undertaking that’s been in the works for almost twelve years now, and this Saturday, June 24th, it’s officially opening to the public. The amount of work that went into making this a reality- both physically and politically is impressive to say the least, but saying the finished product reflects it is an understatement. Special thanks to the Northwest Trail Alliance, Portland Parks and Recreation, and all the volunteers who put countless hours into this project to make it a reality. Gateway Green is the Portland area’s first, extensive, 25-acre mountain bike-specific park which lies just on the other side of I-205 from Rocky Butte and just a few blocks away from the Gateway Transit Center. It’s incredibly accessible by either the 205 bike path, or the Blue, Green and Red MAX lines, and is only seven miles away from River City. For more information on the park, be sure to visit www.gatewaygreenpdx.org, and we hope to see you out there soon!”
What do you ride if you’re 6’10”? Dave from River City Bicycles wanted a bicycle in-store for a Portland Trailblazer, or any customer that tall, and the result is a titanium road bike built to commemorate the 1977 NBA Championship won by the Portland Trailblazers.
You can’t have a ‘cross season without a Halloween race, especially in Portland! To see some photos from the Halloween Cross Crusade, head over to River City Bicycles.
How many ‘Nagos are hanging out in the rafters at River City?
Molteni Orange wasn’t just for Eddy! Colnago originated this iconic color for the sausage-sponsored team. Leave it to River City to own such a prime specimen!

Mavericks were always a special kind of funky, especially with their inverted forks but I’ve never seen one this rad!
Wanna see what one of the first production remote-operated dropper posts looked like? Nice one, River City!
A stayer stem, cottered cranks and a well-aged patina are just some of the details found in this Schwinn Paramount track bike from River City Bicycles’ collection.
The Portland International Raceway marked the end of the 2015 Cross Crusade in Oregon. Many, many thanks to River City Bicycles for carrying us along for each of these races!
Another weekend, another Cross Crusades in the Portland area… Seriously, this one looks so amazing.
Oh man, Oregon knows how to throw a ‘cross race!
