As Portland works on its Off-Road Cycling Master Plan, an expert from maybe the country’s best state for urban mountain biking is coming to town.

Joshua Rebennack, a professional environmental engineer and mountain biking trail volunteer based in central Minnesota, will discuss “Knobbies in the Neighborhood” from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16 at the Multnomah Athletic Club, 1849 SW Salmon Street.

It’ll be free and open to the public. Sorry for the confusion. RSVP to Kelsey Cardwell of NW Trail Alliance at kelseyc@nw-trail.org.

According to the Northwest Trail Alliance, Rebennack will use “the experiences of off-­road cycling trail systems built and in other cities to distill out lessons that any municipality, including Portland, can apply to their own off­road cycling trail plans.”
