The New Year’s Day Ride

January 1 at 12:00 pm

The Street Trust upholds longtime Portland tradition: The New Year’s Day Ride

For over 50 years, Portlanders have welcomed the new year with a bike ride. The ride serves two purposes:
* highlights recent and upcoming changes to our streets
* provides a fun opportunity to see new parts of the city with friends old and new

The New Years Day Ride is a mellow, sociable, 10 mile, family-friendly bicycle ride. All are welcome to attend.

This year’s ride will highlight three exciting projects:
* Better Naito Forever, nearing completion
* Ned Flanders Crossing, Portland’s newest bicycle and pedestrian bridge
* Congressman Earl Blumenauer Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge, sited, but not yet rideable

Streets are quiet on New Year’s Day, which allows the New Year’s Day Ride to take routes that might be unpleasant on any other day.

The ride will also showcase upcoming changes happening for people biking and walking as part of Central City in Motion and the Rose Lane Project, discuss the Green Loop, the Earthquake Ready Burnside Bridge project, Human Access Project’s Burnside Bridge Pedestrian Access Bridge concept, and bike across Tilikum Crossing.
