Tonight, I’m headed to Southwest Portland for the second in our ongoing series of Get Together events. We’ll be at the Lucky Labrador Brewpub in Multnomah Village (7675 SW Capitol Hwy.) from 5-7:00pm.
If you live, work, or ride in and around the circuitous, hilly roads of Southwest Portland we’d love to meet you and we hope you’ll consider joining us. The point of these events is simply to learn and connect. They’re a great way to learn about hot bike issues and meet other bikers in your neighborhood (I hope eventually they grow to include even people that don’t ride, but are curious for whatever reason).
Last month, we had a great time in St. Johns sharing local bike knowledge and getting a better feel for the neighborhood. A few folks from the Bureau of Transportation showed up to share about local issues and to answer questions and hear your feedback about projects they’re working on.
Tonight, we’ll have uber-advocate Keith Liden on hand to share his big effort to help establish and create a network of bike boulevards in Southwest Portland. But remember, these Get Together are not just about wonking out about projects and issues — the conversation is open to anything and it all depends on who shows up.
I hope you’ll join us!

Wish I could make it… working tonight.
that’s cool Jebus. anything you think we should remember to talk about on your behalf?
While riding along SW Barbur is flatter, the speed of the traffic is unnerving for many. Beware of right hook potential southbound at Barbur and Capitol Highway. For no additonal distance, a more scenic and safer bike lane follows SW Terwilliger to Capitol Highway and then to the pub in Multnomah Village.
I’ll swing by for pint. Edwin cooks a mean pie too.
You got it Wyatt. I notice your route avoids a few blocks of Capitol Highway from Terwilliger to Sunset Blvd. It is more scenic, no traffic.
