We’re excited to announce the first in what we hope are many BikePortland Get Togethers. The first one is happening this Tuesday (2/3) in St. Johns (details below).
The idea behind these new events is simple. We want to meet up with you off-line and give you an opportunity to connect with your neighbors for a lively discussion about local bike issues.
Anyone who lives, works, commutes, or otherwise spends time in the neighborhood is invited to join us.
Each month we’ll hold one in a different part of the city and we’ll bring in folks who are involved in the local bike scene to help kickstart the conversation.
Do you have ideas about how to improve biking on the St. Johns Bridge? What is the status of on-street bike parking in downtown? What are the safe and family-friendly bike routes through the neighborhood? Is Weir’s Cyclery really the oldest bike shop in Portland? What does PBOT have planned for St. Johns? These, and all other topics are fair game for discussion.
We hope you’ll spread the word and join us on Tuesday night. Please note: This is our first Get Together, so we’ve kept things as simple as possible. As always, we are open to your feedback.
Here are the details:
