Bike Summit fund drive a success!

Posted by on February 6th, 2006 at 12:35 pm

I’m happy to announce that I’ve now raised almost $1000 for my trip to the National Bike Summit in Washington DC. I’m all registered, I’ve bought my plane tickets, and even snagged a hotel room right across the street from the Summit.

Huge thanks to everyone who donated. I’ve been amazed at your generosity and kind notes. I am honored to represent the Portland bike community and I’m excited to bring my unique perspectives on advocacy, activism and community building to this event.

Special thanks to one loyal reader (who will remain nameless) who paid my entire $350 registration fee (!).

I’m grateful to all of you, even if you weren’t able to donate. Just by reading and contributing comments you play in important role in making this site a success.

Stay tuned for reports, photos and scuttlebut from DC!

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael

    Congrats my friend. I look forward to reading of the journey and what you learn and how to apply it to Portland (and elsewhere).
