Don’t miss the best night of the year… the Portland Bicycling Club’s Awards Banquet on Thursday, February 3, 2022, at the Monarch Hotel near Clackamas Town Center.

This is an evening to celebrate our outstanding club members who have provided service to the club above and beyond the norm and whose eff­orts have contributed greatly to our riding enjoyment.

The banquet is a casual a­ffair. Dress up fancy or wear your most comfortable jeans. Come and see if you recognize your best riding friends in street clothes! This is an event for all members. Come by yourself, bring a guest …or bring a group! Enjoy two of our favorite things: bicycling and eating. The Monarch puts together an exceptional banqu­et. In light of the pandemic, dinner will be plated, not buffet style. Guests will be asked to mask up except when eating or drinking. Socializing begins at 5:00 p.m. and dinner starts at 6:00 p.m. with awards to follow.

As we are foregoing raffle prizes to save club funds, consider wrapping a white elephant gift or a surplus bicycling item for a mystery raffle!  Exchange your gift for a ticket.  You’ll be guaranteed to win if you enter! You can also be a winner by bringing a canned food item to donate to SnowCap.
