Doing Bridge Pedal? Like the Idea of Biking I-5 Car-Free? Join the BTA!

In Portland, Providence Health has been a huge supporter of bicycling. Their Bridge Pedal ride across the Portland bridges - even the Interstates, on the Fremont and Marquam bridges! - is one of the signature events in Portland bike culture. It's a chance to see the city in ways you never do. Even in a car, you just don't get these views! If you're interested in a unique kind of bike ride, consider Portland on Sunday, August 8th.

The Bicycle Transportation Alliance is one of the beneficiaries of the ride. With Providence they've put together a terrific membership deal: Save $25 on a first-time or renewal membership!
To get the discount:
1. Go to: http://blog.bridgepedal.com/registration/
2. Click the link to register online
3. Choose the last option (Bridge Pedal registration/BTA membership package)
4. Accept the terms and conditions
5. Choose your ride and complete the rest of the form

As Salem's bike culture matures, we hope that Salem will grow into events like this and like Sunday Parkways. In the meantime, if you're looking for a family-friendly event in August, this one's pretty grand.
