Bike Loud West Portland Chapter Kickoff Ride

Maritza Arango (Events Editor) by on September 26th, 2021 at 11:45 pm

“Calling all bicycling advocates! Do you want better bike infrastructure? More encouragement for cycling? More education about traffic safety? More equity within cycling? BikeLoud is Portland’s all-volunteer, scrappy, grass-roots bike advocacy organization. And we’re growing! In addition to our normal city-wide efforts, we are creating new local-level chapters. The idea is that citywide efforts miss out on folks who want to work on issues in their local areas.

This 30 minute ride kicks off the new Westside chapter of BikeLoud. This is meant to identify Portland advocates to focus on issues West of the Willamette River. After the ride, at 5:30pm, we’ll hold our first meeting, outdoors and spaced out under a covered location. We’ll plug you into existing advocacy efforts or find new advocacy projects based on the skillset and interests of attendees. BikeLoud has many volunteers who are also professionals in transportation, so we have resources to tap into.

Come just for the ride to meet amazing advocates, or come just for the meeting. Even if you don’t have time for advocacy, but have knowledge or resources you can offer, please come! We want to connect advocates and resources.

4:45pm: meet for ride
5pm: start riding
5:30pm: end ride at 301 SW Lincoln St, at the tables in the parking lot by the waterfall. Begin BikeLoud chapter meeting. Help change Portland.
6:30pm: end meeting

End location: 301 SW Lincoln St, at the tables in the parking lot near the waterfall at 5:30pm. At that time, we’ll begin our 1 hour meeting.”
