Here’s an excerpt from the agenda:

“Mountain bicycling is fast growing as a popular recreational activity. It is also gaining a more prominent role in national bicycle politics. The update of the Bicycle Master Plan will incorporate in its report the state of existing conditions for mountain bicycling in Portland as well as PUMP’s desired conditions for single-track trails in Portland.”

The Bicycle Advisory Committee meets Tuesday, May 8th at 7:00pm in City Hall (Lovejoy Room).

    I am fairly new to mountain biking in Portland and I would like to see some (legal) SINGLETRACK within city limits. If anyone knows of any please let me know.
