The newly hired top gun at the Bicycle Transportation Alliance, Rob Sadowsky, won’t officially take the helm until July 1st, but you can meet him and hear him speak at our big Bike to Blazers Rally in Waterfront Park on April 14th.
Sadowsky will be one of the featured speakers at the rally, which will take place at the Salmon Street Fountain amphitheater, just north of the Hawthorne Bridge on the west side of the Willamette River. The rally starts at 5:30 and we leave for the Rose Garden Arena at 6:00 — so don’t be late!
Also at the rally we’ll have a fun time comparing headbands and other Bill Walton accouterments, and one lucky winner will take home a helmet signed by the Big Man himself.
Speaking of big men, I’m working on other fun surprises for the rally, including someone from the Blazers organization. I think Mr. Greg Oden would be a perfect man to fill that role, but so far I haven’t had any luck tracking him down. Anyone know him and feel like passing a note along to him? I’ve got a pedicab waiting to escort him to the game (due to his injury). After all, he gets the bike thing. Did you happen to see this cool video he did with former Portland Mayor Bud Clark?
Whether you’ve got a ticket to the game or not, join us on April 14th for the Bike to Blazers rally, ride, and bike fun zone at the Rose Garden. More info at BikePortland.org/BiketoBlazers.
