Boring is a small town southeast of Portland. Last night, uber-advocate Jessica Roberts of the BTA met with the Boring Community Planning Organization and they discussed several exciting trails projects, including:
- Finishing the unpaved portion of the Springwater Corridor between Gresham and Boring
- Developing a trailhead park in Boring with trail user info
- Several proposals to extend the current Springwater corridor eastward, eventually to the Pacific Crest trail and Sandy
- A Fourth of July weekend ride with a sleepover at the school, a barbecue, a pancake feed, and fireworks!
The folks in Boring have already got the ball rolling on these projects and support from cyclists here in Portland could be instrumental in making them a reality. For more information on how you can get involved, read this forum post by Jessica.
