On Sunday (6/18) PBEM joined amateur radio operators and cargo bike enthusiasts by participating in Pedalpalooza's inaugural Disaster Relief Trials event.
PBEM's communications trailer supported the amateur radio component of the festivities as cargo bike riders pedaled through obstacles and overcame other challenges along a 30 mile course in north and northeast Portland.
