Default Intro - Returning Portlander

Hi, just wanted to introduce myself! I am a native Oregonian and lived in Portland for four years before moving to NYC for grad school two years ago. I graduate in two weeks with my master's in nonprofit management and then I'm moving back to Portland, hooray!

I grew up in a small town and used to ride a bike everywhere as a kid but didn't get back into it until a couple years ago. I only rode in Portland a little bit before moving to the east coast and I felt pretty intimidated riding in the city. Now that I ride all over NYC, I find it pretty funny that I was so nervous on the roads in Portland!

I'm excited to get back and really enjoy the streets with my new-found confidence! Following traffic laws is going to take some getting used to but I'm looking forward to feeling a little safer. I'm generally a rule follower but I learned quick that over here it's every person for themselves.

Portland, here I come!

Katy (middle name is Irene)

be sure to check out the resource links on BikePortlands main site to find local resources that fit with the kind of riding and activities you like to do. This is at the top of the page of BP. Besides locating shops,etc, there are links to governmental resources, clubs,all sorts of stuff.
