Both Jonathan and I are out of town until tonight, so your regularly scheduled news roundup will be published on Tuesday this week.
For now, take a moment to celebrate a gift workers at the Doubletree Hotel gave the city last Thursday. It’s a beautiful celebration of Portlanders’ love of physical activity.
BikePortland readers may remember the Doubletree as the Lloyd District establishment that volunteered to host one of the biggest off-street public bike parking areas in the city, and the one that once dumped an event vendor that illegally parked a truck in the Multnomah Street protected bike lane.
Now, reader Craig Harlow writes to note that the hotel added this mural to its windows on the south side if Multnomah along the protected lane, “giving a little life to what’s been a mostly dead wall for years.”
That’s work we can believe in. Happy holiday, Portland, and see you tomorrow.
