Next Tuesday (5/26), at our monthly meeting, PUMP (Portland United Mountain Pedalers) is unveiling a new name and a new logo. This rebranding coincides with a major transformation the group is currently undergoing and it will mark the beginning of a new chapter in the history of mountain bike advocacy in Portland, NW Oregon and SW Washington.
Whether you are a current PUMP member or not, we like to invite you to our monthly meeting to join us in celebrating this major milestone in our 21 years of existence. With the new name, the new brand, and the reorganization of our group, we want to carry MTB advocacy in our region to the next level and open our doors to the numerous people in the Portland area who share the joy of riding bicycles on off-road trails and who support our efforts to preserve and increase the opportunities for off-road cycling in our region, regardless of what type of bikes you ride, what style of trails you prefer, or how often you hit the dirt. We want to create a true community of off-road cyclists where everyone feels welcome and where every type of contribution for the cause is appreciated!
