The Portland United Mountain Pedalers (PUMP) want to show Portland officials what singletrack is all about. They’ve sent an invite to City Commissioners, Parks Department staffers and other key stakeholders for a mountain bike ride through Forest Park later this month.
According to PUMP, the ride will show “what is possible if we focus on environmentally-friendly recreational opportunities,” and will include a “discussion of opportunities for creating additional singletrack within city limits.”
The invite-only, nine-mile ride will include a descent down Saltzman Road, a short singletrack experience on the newly completed Fire Lane 5 and a few miles on the Leif Erickson fire road.
Stay tuned for a full report and photos from the ride.
