You’re invited to our next BikePortland Neighborhood Get Together in the Powellhurst neighborhood of outer Southeast Portland — that’s right, we’re going east of I-205.

Anyone who lives, works, commutes, or otherwise spends time in outer Southeast Portland is invited to join us.

This is an informal social event to meet each other, talk shop, compare notes, and generally have a fun evening. Come discuss bike routes, connections, and pavement maintenance, the new MAX light rail line under construction in the neighborhood, and more.

Story continues below


These monthly get togethers are in a different neighborhood each month. So far we’ve visited St. Johns in February and Multnomah Village (with 50 attendees!) in March. Both were great chances to meet people we generally only interact with online, and to learn firsthand about issues in parts of Portland we don’t regularly visit.

We could use ideas for our next stop, so if you’d like to help organize an event in your neighborhood in May or later in the year, get in touch.

We hope you’ll spread the word and join us on Monday night.

Here are the details:

BikePortland Neighborhood Get Together: Powellhurst
Monday, April 20th, 5pm – 7:30pm
Location: The Rumpus Room, 10555 SE Division

    Was very cool to meet all the die-hards that were still there at 7 or so when I arrived. Only sorry my work schedule slash long commute kept me from getting there earlier.

    This certainly inspired me to get more involved.
