Today is Bike to Work Day!
Here in Portland, the day isn’t met with the same kind of fanfare as in some other cities (where the idea of biking is much more of a novelty). But even so, there’s at least one big event planned today — the annual Bike to Work Breakfast hosted by the Lloyd District Transportation Management Association (their mission is to improve access and mobility in the Lloyd District).
Portland Mayor Sam Adams, with his new carfree commitment and fresh off a trip to the Velo-City conference in Brussells, might stop by Oregon Square (6th and NE Holladay) between 7:30-9:00 this morning to join the fun.
Last week, the City of Portland hosted 400-plus bikers for free breakfast at Pioneer Courthouse Square. It’s all part of a full month of Bike to Work events planned around the city.
But hey, this is an open thread, so we’d love to hear from you!
What’s planned for Bike to Work Day in your town?
