This September, Portlanders will have an opportunity to learn more about our city’s commitment to livability on the Bike to the Future ride.
Created as a fund raiser for the non-profit Coalition for a Livable Future, the ride will take participants to interactive destinations to learn about issues like affordable housing, green building, community gardens, urban ecology, local food, and alternative transportation.
The 28 mile route starts at Sunnyside Environmental School in southeast Portland and has three planned stops.
Riders will learn about the vision for the new North Portland Greenway Trail at a stop at Cathedral Park, then they’ll learn about affordable housing and neighborhood planning at New Columbia, and the ride will finish up with an exploration of wetland restoration projects along the Columbia Slough with presentations by members of the Columbia Slough Watershed Council.
