BICYCLING — The most popular spring and SUMMER organized bicycle tours have filled or are filling fast.

I have a story coming Sunday with a calendar of the most popular local and regional events through August.

The Seattlet o Portland ride (STP), July 9-10,  which takes on 10,000 riders, was 80 percent full on Monday.  I just checked in it's 93 percent full for the 200-mile fully supported tour.

It’s the largest of the region’s cycling events. Info: cascade.org/
