Ride to the Legislature for Bike-Friendly Future

update:Ride and Press Conference Cancelled. Look for more tomorrow.

Tomorrow morning BTA Executive Director Scott Bricker and Environment Oregon's Brock Howell will ride from Portland to Salem for a press conference at the Capitol. See the BTA article here.

Please join us!

Salem-area riders can meet the group at the intersection at Hopmere! Hopmere is at the intersection of Brooklake Road and River Road (Highway 219). Plan to meet at the market there at 11am.

Portland area riders will meet at the Skidmore MAX station in downtown Portland at 8:20 am on Wednesday, and travel on MAX and WES to Wilsonville. At 10:00 am they will depart the Wilsonville WES station for Salem on bicycle. See the full Wilsonville to Salem route here.

This will be a great opportunity to give visibility to the need for a truly multi-modal transportation package that makes meaningful progress towards greenhouse gas emissions and a transportation system that moves people rather than engines.
