Central City Emerging (Portland)
August 2, 2016 from 5:45 pm - 8:00 pm
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Portland’s Central City is about to get a lot of improvement for people who travel by bike. We’ll check out where to ride in downtown today, including brand new bikeways, and where we may see improvements soon. Meet at 5:45; we ride at 6.
Great for folks new to the bike or new to the area, the ride will be an easy-paced loop, with stops along the way and returning to the start location. Route will be mostly on low-traffic streets and neighborhood greenways, with some off-street paths. A few sections will be on streets with bike lanes.
The ride is free, but helmets are required. Kids under 16 welcome if accompanied by an adult.
