Yes, you are allowed to grieve the passing of summer. But, no, that doesn't give you permission to store your bicycle and walking shoes for the rainy season. (Plus, we've still got plenty of sun left yet.)
The Transportation Options team has two great classes and our annual Safe Routes to School campaign to keep you braving the elements!
Back to School is Cool with Safe Routes
The Portland Safe Routes to School program will once again be working with 2nd to 5th grade students at nearly 70 schools to help them learn how to be safe pedestrians and bicyclists. To find out more about Safe Routes to School, go to www.SafeRoutesPortland.org.
Portland SmartTrips Fall Bike Classes
Our Portland By Cycle (PBC) and Women on Bikes (WOB) programs have some fun fall bike classes that will help you forget about the weather. PBC has an All Season Cycling class on September 15, and WOB is offering aGear Up For Winter Riding clinic on September 18. The best part is they’re FREE!
