Beyond Portlandia Free Bike Tour
July 2, 2017 at 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Hey! Do you know where you live?
Join Everybody’s Bike Rentals & Tours on a FREE BIKE TOUR of NE Portland and learn about the too-often-untold history of this incredible neighborhood, the forces that shaped it, and the folks whose stories are at risk of being lost. You’ll never look at NE Portland the same again!
Although Portland is now known as an artsy, progressive, foodie paradise, there’s a deeper story hidden in plain site if you know where to look. On this scenic 2-hour tour you’ll learn the fascinating history of NE Portland, from the first inhabitants over 10,000 years ago to the radically transforming city we see today.
We’ll head down bike-lanes and back streets, giving you the scoop on secret murals, rich historic sites, goat farms, and more! We’ll dive into the complexity of our collective history by exploring displacement, racism, natural disasters and the systemic inequities that shaped and define this unique city.
We at Everybody’s Bike Rentals & Tours are committed to supporting our community, celebrating local history, and championing a bike-centric lifestyle!
THIS TOUR IS FREE TO ATTEND AND ALL DONATIONS GO DIRECTLY TO Self Enhancement, Inc. (SEI) IN NE PORTLAND!
