Ride participants included Hill Abell (Board President of the International Mountain Bicycling Association), Sheila Lyons (from ODOT’s bike and ped program), and Paul Adkins (from Bike Friday in Eugene).
Roger Geller (and his cohort Greg Raisman) shared fun facts about all the cool bike facility innovations that make riding in Portland so great. We got a primer on a bike-only traffic signal, the new bike boxes, the HAWK signal (at Burnside and 42nd), bike corrals (on Mississippi), bike boulevards, and more — all with a backdrop of a gorgeous spring day.
