Hour of Speed

Michelle Miller, Sarah Miller, & Laura de la Houssaye.

One hour 
in the middle of the week simply improves anybody's outlook,
but when a goal-oriented bicycle racer finds a pace-line,
a circular course,
and a wild bunch of playful sprinters,
they know they have found something special flying around Cutter Circle Boulevard,
on Portland's famous Swan Island,
Holding on to the "whiplash" around the corner.

Swarming south on SW Broadway.

At Cyclisme Racing Programs Veteran racers interact with benevolence to help newer racers practice Victory.

Games on the open road amidst car traffic
unveil the challenges of racing tactics, pacelines, and the kind of interpersonal bike handling that is valuable in bicycle racing.

Tim Bergmann leads out the traditional sprint after the bridge on Fairmont Loop.
