It's a moment that Portland cyclists will be living down for years, if not decades:
the challenging portion of the 2014 Worst Day of the Year Ride, which had been scheduled for this Sunday, has been canceled because the weather will be bad.
By bad we mean that there will be as many as eight inches of snow on the ground in Portland. The ride is, of course, supposedly timed to the worst weather day of the year. And just yesterday, ride organizers were encouraging riders to "have no fear about the forecast."But, more than 48 hours before the event, "Portland's Favorite Wacky Winter Ride"
We remind you that Minneapolis claims to be the best biking city in America, that their best day of February is worse than our worst and that they are all going to laugh at us.
For the 1st time in 13 years, the ride IS going to be the worst! For safety reasons, the challenge is closing. Urban will remain open.— WorstDay Ride (@WorstDayRide)
