As strange as it may sound, Cully Boulevard in outer Northeast Portland is now home to the most significant piece of bike infrastructure in our city.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has just completed a cycle track that runs 0.6 miles from NE Prescott to Killingsworth. And, unlike the “cycle track” on SW Broadway near Portland State University (which is nice, but it’s really just a curbside bike lane protected from motor vehicle traffic by parked cars), the Cully facility is the real deal.

Event Description: These events are a chance for you to meet up offline to make connections, discuss issues, learn from each other, foment plans, and tap into the local community. They’re also a chance for us to meet you and find out about issues in parts of Portland that we don’t often get a chance to visit. If you live, ride, work or play in the area, please come join us.
Get-togethers are made possible in part by SKS Germany. We will have SKS product door prizes for some attendees. Please bring money for drinks and food if interested.
