The City of Beaverton (Portland’s neighbor to the west) and their Bicycle Advisory Committee are planning “Bike Beaverton” tomorrow night.
The event poster encourages folks to “Join your neighbors… for an evening bicycle ride through Beaverton.” The route will be a 7 mile loop starting and ending at the Beaverton City Library using low volume neighborhood streets and streets with bike lanes.
Beaverton’s Senior Transportation Planner Margaret Middleton says the event came about because the advisory committee wanted to, “invite people to ride their bikes in Beaverton.” She adds that, “The ride will be a little bit of education, of course, a lot of fun and a lot of community interaction.”
According to Middleton, they hope to make this an annual event.
It’s great to see Beaverton doing a ride like this and I hope they get a solid turnout.
