1,500 free cookies and hot cocoa at Bike the Lights tonight

Winter Wonderland-Bike Night at PIR-17

Bike the Lights is tonight from 5-9pm out at PIR.


Tonight is the annual carfree night at the big Winter Wonderland event out at Portland International Raceway (PIR, just north of Kenton). For several years now, organizers have promoted a “Bike the Lights” event (sponsored by Bike Gallery) where for $6 you can ride through the big light displays. It’s a lot of fun and kids love it! ($1 of your admission goes to the Bicycle Transportation Alliance).

It’s always cold and sometimes a bit rainy; but I’ve found that just adds to the winter spirit and makes everyone get a bit more cozy. And this year, if you need a bit more motivation to grab your friends and/or family and head out there, our friend Jeff Bernards says Beaverton Bakery has baked 1,500 cookies just for the event. They should taste quite good with a bit of hot cocoa.

So light up your bike and roll up to PIR tonight. Bike the Lights is from 5:00 to 9:00 pm and kids under 13 are free.

To get more of a feel for the event, check out a few photos from years past…

It was so cold in 2009 that Jay Graves let folks warm up in his heated VW van.
