0 Comments

Bike saddle covers celebrate May, Bike Month.The Portland Bureau of Transportation is hosting dozens of events to celebrate those already riding and to encourage everyone else to dust off their bikes and enjoy the spring weather. A full list of breakfasts and a calendar of all the month’s events can be found on the PDX Bike Month website.

PBOT’s Safe Routes to School program kicked off the season with the first of eight bike breakfasts.  At today’s event, held near Gilberts Heights Elementary School,  staff greeted and fed students, parents and commuters on their way to school, work and errands.  Since May is also Walk + Bike to School Challenge Month many families arrived on foot.

If you would like to learn more about benefits of and tools for encouraging bike commuting at the workplace, Regence is holding the second annual Portland Employers Bike Summit on National Bike to Work Day, Friday May 17, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. at 100 SW Market. Nearly 50 people have already RSVP’d for the event. 

And if you’re interested but not sure you’re ready to use your bike for transportation, come to the Cycling Essentials class on Thursday, May 9th at PSU’s Bike Hub at 6:30 pm.  It’s free and offers a wealth of information to help you become a confident and comfortable rider.

Happy Bike Month everyone!
