Like beer and bikes? Read this…

Portland leads the nation in two great pastimes; bikes and beer. Bridgeport and Widmer take care of our beer…but who takes care of our bikes? Who makes sure we’re getting loved down in Salem when the issues get sticky? Who gets the word out and mobilizes the troops when someone is trying to pull the wool over our eyes? That’s right…the BTA. And they do it with a shoestring budget and staff.

So besides becoming a member, wouldn’t it be a great if there was a fun and easy way to support them? Well there is!

Join your biking brethren on Monday, September 26th at McMenamins Market Street Pub. When you drop in between 5 PM and 1 AM for a drink or snack 50% of the proceeds from your purchase go directly to the BTA. So get out your pens, PDAs, whatever…that’s McMenamins’ Market Street Pub, 1526 SW 10th Ave, Monday, September 26th from 5 PM to 1 AM. Be there or be square, and remember to please consider taking the MAX or bus or stuff your bike into a cab. Whatever you do, don’t drink and ride.
