Press Release: BTA’s New Year’s Day Ride

Posted by on December 15th, 2008 at 3:24 pm

This just in from the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA):

Bicycle Transportation Alliance Starts the New Year Off Right with a Local Bike Ride

It’s a 50-year tradition – the BTA and Portland bicyclists get off to a good start with the New Year’s Day Ride! This is a free, easy, family-friendly way to spend the first afternoon of 2009.

It is also a benefit for the Brett Jarolimek Memorial Fund. The Brett J. Fund supports bike safety projects and bike safety awareness.

Whether they go to bed at 8:00 pm New Year’s Eve or 3:00 am New Year’s Day, attendees can handle a 12 noon start time at the Battleship Oregon Memorial in Portland’s Waterfront Park and an easy 3-mile ride to the eastside and back.

At the end of the ride, everyone will enjoy free warm drinks and snacks at McCall’s Restaurant next to the Salmon St. Springs in Tom McCall Waterfront Park, as a reward for sticking to their New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, or get fit, or save money, or help the environment – or all of the above! And with a more bike-friendly US Congress and Oregon legislature recently elected, Oregon cyclists are optimistic about the future.
