Adaptive BIKETOWN will be participating at Sunday Parkways this year
Portland’s adaptive bike rental program, Adaptive BIKETOWN, will be at the kickoff Sunday Parkways in Southeast Portland on Sunday, May 20th. Join Adaptive BIKETOWN at Sewallcrest Park, Southeast 31st Avenue and Market Street from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Everyone is invited to stop by the park and say “hello.” While you’re there, take a look at the program bikes that will be available for people to experience.
If you would prefer to rent a bike to ride on the Sunday Parkways route or to ride elsewhere, you can make a reservation at:www.adaptivebiketown.com. Also remember, in May, all Adaptive BIKETOWN bikes are free of charge for up to three hours for people who qualify for a TriMet Honored Citizen's pass.
An extension of BIKETOWN, Portland’s bike share program, Adaptive BIKETOWN is a bike rental service for people with varying abilities and offers a mix of tandem, hand cycles, and three-wheeled bicycles for rent by the hour with the goal of increasing access to cycling.
The Adaptive BIKETOWN rental service is operated by Kerr Bikes, which is owned by the non-profit organization Albertina Kerr. Nike provides sponsorship support to increase awareness of the program. Different Spokes is also a program partner.
