The Sellwood Bike Boulevard project is nearing completion and the neighborhood wants to celebrate. The Sellwood Moreland Improvement League (SMILE) will host a bike ride and party on Saturday December 19th to welcome the City’s first “next generation” bike boulevard.

According to SMILE Vice President Tina Osterink, the celebration will include a group ride through the neighborhood, bike safety clinics from the Bicycle Transportation Alliance, a raffle for a free bike, flat repair clinics from Sellwood Cycle Repair, and more. Hot chocolate will also be served up by Sellwood’s Blue Kangaroo Coffee Roasters.

Sounds like a great family-friendly event, which is fitting given that the project has made SE Spokane street much more pleasant for family biking.

Full event details at the SMILE website.

Stay tuned for a photo essay and full report on this project coming shortly.

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
