The Sellwood Bike Boulevard project is nearing completion and the neighborhood wants to celebrate. The Sellwood Moreland Improvement League (SMILE) will host a bike ride and party on Saturday December 19th to welcome the City’s first “next generation” bike boulevard.
According to SMILE Vice President Tina Osterink, the celebration will include a group ride through the neighborhood, bike safety clinics from the Bicycle Transportation Alliance, a raffle for a free bike, flat repair clinics from Sellwood Cycle Repair, and more. Hot chocolate will also be served up by Sellwood’s Blue Kangaroo Coffee Roasters.
Sounds like a great family-friendly event, which is fitting given that the project has made SE Spokane street much more pleasant for family biking.
Full event details at the SMILE website.
Stay tuned for a photo essay and full report on this project coming shortly.
