Gathering At Gateway Green Dirt Lab (Portland)
June 24, 2017 from 11:00 am - 4:00 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.

Gathering at Gateway Green will introduce all of the metro region’s cycling community to the Dirt Lab, the city’s newest bike park and a prototype of urban mountain biking’s future in Portland.
Initially offering more than three miles of cycling-only, IMBA-built single-track, a dirt-jump line, a skills development area, and a pump track, the Dirt Lab becomes the perfect, transit-served destination for casual rides, training, coaching, classes, and events. Check out the site plan.
In addition to open riding, come enjoy:
• Adult and youth demo bikes, courtesy of Fat Tire Farm and Performance Bicycle
• Dirt jumping, pump track, and skills course exhibitions and instruction
• “Guided tours” for youth who’ve never experienced on-trail mountain biking
Gathering at Gateway Green also features Northwest Outward Bound School. Once you’re done riding, try out their slackline. And then kick up your feet and enjoy the food and beverages sourced from the surrounding community. Find details on all the festival activities here: http://www.gatewaygreenpdx.org/the-gathering
There’s no entry fee, no RSVP. Come alone, bring your family, or all your riding friends. But you’ll definitely want to come. It’s the big day for the Dirt Lab, after all.
