One of the goals of the Bike Safety Workshops the City put on over the summer was to inspire neighborhoods to form their own bike safety groups.
They even gave out some grant money to make it happen. Well, leave it to the folks at Southeast Uplift (SEUL) to be the first to run with the idea.
SEUL were the folks that organized the guerilla public education event during the October Breakfast on the Bridges . They’ve been meeting monthly since September and they’ve already started scoping out sites to advocate for bike and pedestrian-friendly development.
Their meetings are open to everyone. For more info call Steve Hoyt at (503) 232-0010 x321 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To start a bike group like this in your neighborhood, contact
