We have a great lineup forming of folks who do business in inner industrial Southeast Portland, or who can speak to citywide issues. Ellen Vanderslice from the City of Portland will update us on the progress of the Bike Master Plan; Chris Smith of Portland Streetcar will be on hand to discuss progress in planning future streetcar lines in this area and in the city as a whole; Edwin Skaug will talk about building up his bike-based mobile convenience store business; Jed Lazar from Soupcycle will update us on the current status of the Bicycle Business League; Todd Fahrner from Clever Cycles will talk about their upcoming events; and there may be a few more, so stay tuned!
This Get Together is particularly close to our heart, as it is only a few blocks from our office — we’re really looking forward to meeting up with all you neighbors, coworkers, commuters, and the many, many others of you who ride, work, live, and play in this area.
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 tact 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
