August special event: Tour de France presentation

In lieu of a meeting this month, the Portland Society presents evening event with special guests Heidi Swift and Jennifer Cree, who will talk about their experience riding the Tour de France course a day ahead of the race last month. Swift and Cree are part of a team of six amateur cyclists with the grand vision of completing a major athletic challenge, raising awareness for women’s role (or lack thereof) in professional bike racing, and raising money for bike infrastructure. A short talk will be followed by a Q&A and discussion.

The event is Wednesday, August 8th from 6-9pm at the Lucky Lab, 1700 N Killingsworth. Program starts at 7pm, but there are only 45 seats so be sure to get there early. The public is invited.
