Every One Rides returns to North Portland

Inclusion Ride for Children at Harper's Playground

at Arbor Lodge Park ~  North Portland, Oregon

 Happy child riding an adaptive bike at Sunday Parkways North 2018

Participation and inclusion in public celebrations is at the heart of bicycling the Portland Sunday Parkways that is why Sunday Parkways is excited to team up with Every One Rides again this year!

Every One Rides aims to provide another way for individuals, families and friends with different levels of abilities to participate in the event.

Every One Rides is a child-centric area for families who have adaptive needs to enjoy the streets and find the joy of cycling in the open air. Adaptive bicycles allow children to experience the delight of being on a bicycle while also gaining a sense of independence paired with belonging through physical activity.

Martine Sacks and A.J. Zelada, founders of the Every One Rides program, have assembled several parties who would like to bring in new bicyclists and educate families about what is possible when bicycling as a family.

The Every One Rides activity will be located on a quieter streetscape next to Harper’s Playground, Portland’s first accessible playground.  The east side of Delaware St adjacent to Harper’s Playground allows participants to share adaptive equipment to cycle the entire block within a safe and controlled manner.

Adaptive Tech participants include Different Spokes, GoBabyGo, AMBUCS, Recumbent PDX, cargo bikes providers, NW Down's Association, United Cerebral Palsy Assoc.,Trauma Nurse Talk Tough, etc. Look for their booths next to the Every One Rides activity. 

Every One Rides will also have volunteers from the Providence Transportation program as well as local Physical and Occupational therapists on site during the event to work directly with children. See you at Arbor Lodge Park from 11 am – 4 pm on Sunday, June 30th!
