Boring is a small town southeast of Portland. Last night, uber-advocate Jessica Roberts of the BTA met with the Boring Community Planning Organization and they discussed several exciting trails projects, including:
Finishing the unpaved portion of the Springwater Corridor between Gresham and Boring
Developing a trailhead park in Boring with trail user info
Several proposals to extend the current Springwater corridor eastward, eventually to the Pacific Crest trail and Sandy
A Fourth of July weekend ride with a sleepover at the school, a barbecue, a pancake feed, and fireworks!
The folks in Boring have already got the ball rolling on these projects and support from cyclists here in Portland could be instrumental in making them a reality. For more information on how you can get involved, read this forum post by Jessica.

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 class 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
