Bike Town Hall With State Legislators
September 14 at 9:30 am - 1:30 pm
For over a decade, the legislators representing Senate District 23 (a good chunk of NE and SE Portland) have hosted a Bike Town Hall, and this year will probably be the best yet. Rain or shine we will ride through SE Portland visiting sites, learning about bike infrastructure and hearing presentations from community organizations and leaders such as NAYA, APANO, Transition Projects, and many more. The round-trip mileage will be around 8 miles, so please bring water! Some snacks will be provided.
Sounds like a blast right? Bring your bike and join us this Saturday 9/14 at 9:30AM at APANO (SE 82nd & Division), we will be leaving the site no later than 10:15am. We will finish up at the Portland Mercado (SE 72nd & Foster) around 1:30pm after a busy and fun day in our community with your elected representatives. Please feel free to bring kids — this is a family-friendly event.
Want to join the Bike Town Hall but don’t have a functional bike right now? Or, are you unsure if riding a two-wheeled upright bike for a few hours will work for you? We are proud to coordinate with PBOT to offer Adaptive BIKETOWN bikes for anyone who would prefer to ride an adaptive bike. We can provide hand cycles, tandems and tricycles, including an e-assist tricycle. Please reach out by email or phone by 12pm on 9/13 to reserve your bike: firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-986-1445.
We also will be offering a limited supply of Lime e-scooters and free helmets for constituents to use, so also reach out if you would like to reserve one. Users are encourage to download the Lime app in advance of the ride. Please note that while you will need to add a payment card to the account, these scooters will be free to use for the event. When the ride is finished, they will be need to be parked outside of APANO so that they can be collected.
