Portland to open National Bike Summit

Posted by on January 19th, 2006 at 6:27 am

Portland has been given the opening slot to kick off the National Bike Summit being held March 1-3 in Washington D.C.. According to the official schedule, a “distinguished panel of Oregonians” will be telling the crowd (a who’s who of advocates, lobbyists and industry leaders) how to make their communities more bike-friendly and how to apply lessons they learned from their recent trip to Amsterdam.

Evan from the BTA tells me that the panel will include him (he’s Executive Director), Bike Gallery owner Jay Graves, urban planner Mia Birk and City Commissioner Sam Adams.

Can’t think of a better group of folks to represent our fair city. Break a hub, or whatever you are suppose to do for good luck at a National Bike Summit.
