Last Wednesday a group of David Douglas High School students participated in a Safe Routes to School ride exploring biking in their neighborhood. The ride covered over 7 miles of streets in East Portland and was developed in partnership with the Portland Youth Planners Program. We explored walking and biking accessibility around David Douglas High School and taught map reading skills. The students were very excited to ride, for some this was their first time being on a bike since they were little children. This is one of two pilot high school projects that we're experimenting with this year.
