The Portland Bicycle Advisory Committee is a group of volunteers that advises the City Council and the City of Portland's bureaus on all bicycle-related matters. Each year the BAC dedicates one of its meeting to a bicycle tour of bike facilities.
If you are interested in bicycle design innovations or simply want an excuse for a ride before summer is out, join the BAC and Portland's Bicycle Coordinator Roger Geller on Tuesday, September 11th in the plaza of City Hall on SW Fourth Avenue. The ride will depart at 6:00 p.m.
The bike tour route will include approximately a dozen different bikeway treatments, including two examples of cycle tracks (separated bike lanes on SW Broadway and SW Moody), progressed signals that recognize cyclists as they approach an intersections, and the Gibbs Street pedestrian and bicycle bridge.
The bike ride will cover about 12 miles and will take about two hours.
The BAC meets at 6 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month. Except for this month's bike tour, meetings are held in the Lovejoy Room in City Hall at 1221 SW 4th Avenue.
If you have questions or need more information, please call Roger Geller at 823-7671.
