We are incredibly excited to bring the first Native and Indigenous Bike ride to Portland, Oregon. This will be a 9-mile, party-pace ride from the downtown waterfront area to Laurelhurst Park and we will end our ride at PSU’s Native American Student and Community Center for fry bread, music, and vendors. Meet up is at 2PM, ride out at 3PM. Ending event will start at 5PM. *You will not receive the starting point for the ride or the $50 Biketown/Lyft credit if you do not sign up for the ride via our waiver, LINK IS BELOW*

SIGN UP FOR THE BIKE RIDE TO RECEIVE STARTING POINT (FOR RIDER SAFETY) AND $50 BIKETOWN PROMO CODE HERE:  The final checkpoint event at PSU’s NASCC will be welcoming ALL ALLIES of our community to support the Native and Indigenous vendors/affiliates. Come get some FRY BREAD starting at 5 PM!! DON’T OWN A BIKE!? NO PROBLEM!BIKETOWN/Lyft will provide a $50 credit for all of our Native and Indigenous riders who sign up via our waiver being put out by BikePOC.

IF YOU NEED A HELMET please reach out to the IG handled below, we are working with @chingonasoutside to make this possible. The funding will provide payment for the venue first as a priority. Any additional donations will be given to the Native and Indigenous vendors/affiliates. Thank you for your time and efforts. This event is for Native Americans and peoples who identify as Indigenous not only here in the US but for example Chicanos and Taínos such as myself and many others that would not identify as Natives.
