TriMet, and its partners on the I-205 light rail construction project, are planning “I-bike-205, a party on pedals”. The event will take place on July 13th when they will unveil a new 6.5 mile alternate bike route around the planned construction.
On the event flyer, TriMet says,
“Because riders of all kinds will be using the new route, we see this as a double opportunity: 1) Show riders theroute; 2) Celebrate local biking culture…so join us for a new ride, a chance to see the full diversity of local cycling, and a cool summer party.”
TriMet plans to invite advocacy groups, related agencies and every kind of riding group in the city to set up booths.
They hope to draw hundreds of riders and at the end of the ride there will be, “free food, bike entertainment, prizes, and more.”
