Triple EEE (Exploring Eastside by E-bike) Mobile Workshop

Maritza Arango (Events Editor) by on July 2nd, 2021 at 12:00 am

Meet at “The Porch” of Gateway Discovery Park along NE 106th near Halsey

ABOUT: Sarah Iannarone of The Street Trust will host along with special guests. We’ll learn about the investments Portland has made to improve cycling in East Portland, talk about what other cities around the world are doing to make room for the transformative potential of e-biking and other innovative transportation modes, and connect around our shared interest in changing transportation policy locally and statewide (including how we fund it).

LOGISTICS: This event will depart AT 5:00 SHARP immediately following the Street Trust’s Move More Challenge activation party (formerly the Bike Commute Challenge), which is happening 3-5 pm in Gateway Discovery Park’s “The Porch” in the northeast corner of the park along 106th near Halsey, which will be our departure and stopping point. This is an e-bike focused ride, so people on non-motorized bikes may have a hard time keeping up. E-scooters are not recommended, as they also have a hard time keeping up with e-bikes.

FAQ:

* The two closest Biketown (e-bike) stations will be fully stocked.
* We will ride rain or shine.
* The ride is a closed-loop, we’ll be out about an hour.

After three years at the helm of The Street Trust, Executive Director Jillian Detweiler plans to leave the organization. “It is the right time for me to step down,” she said in a statement released Friday.

The Street Trust, which was known as the Bicycle Transportation Alliance before a name and mission change in 2016, is a Portland-based nonprofit that aims to improve bicycling, walking, and transit.

Instead of searching for a new leader, The Street Trust has named three current staffers to new “co-director” positions. Current Advocacy Director Richa Poudyal, Development Director Tia Sherry, and Director of Finance and Operations Greg Sutliff will “embrace a new leadership model.” The staffers will maintain their current responsibilities and split ED duties.[Read more…]
