Oregon State Rep Jackie Dingfelder (D-Portland) is making a run for State Senate and, like many smart politicos these days, she's including Portland's favorite "micro-constituency" in her campaign plans.
Her supporters have planned a campaign event/bike ride to, "raise awareness about bicycle safety, alternative modes of transportation, climate change, and my plans for a sustainably minded state senate."
Far from just talk, Dingfelder is anything but a poser when it comes to bikes. Back in 2006, the BTA gave her an Alice B. Toeclips Award for her work in helping push bike legislation through the halls of Salem.
Dingfelder was a main sponsor of the Share the Road License Plate Bill that passed last session and last July she joined a host of regional leaders and policymakers on a bike ride that surveyed bike facilities in Portland and Vancouver.
If you'd like to join Ms. Dingfelder and learn more about her position on bike-related issues, here are the details of the ride:
- What: The Volcano Bike Ride, rain or shine!
Meet at Wholesome Blends, bike to Rocky Butte, then to Mt Tabor Park, and then to Bipartisan Cafe for coffee and conversation.
When: Nov 10, 2007, 10:30am to 1:00pm
Where: Wholesome Blends (4615 NE Sandy Blvd) at 10:30am. Bipartisan cafe (7901 SE Stark St) at 12:30.
