Hi Bike Louders!
We got a sneak preview of many new PBOT projects with PBOT Project Manager Gabe Graff.
Last Friday, 14 people joined the BikeLoud West Policy Ride with Gabe and a similar sized group joined separately on Sunday as we retraced the route Gabe took us on.
Sunday's ride even had the bonus of three parents who brought along their young children, so we all got a good sense of how our downtown streets should safely include families who bike for transportation.

BikeLoud West Update
Sunday's Policy Ride ended with an outdoor meeting to discuss future BikeLoud West activities. Sean Sweat, founder of the Urban Phoenix Project, spoke about movement building, communications, and policy action and how he is bringing this expertise to Portland. Sean has been living in the Pearl for the past year.
Viv Jeevan led the BikeLoud West outdoor meeting. Several ideas bubbled up including tabling at the Saturday PSU Farmer's Market to increase membership, and doing tactical work on some gaps in West Portland including the Hawthorne Bridge gap. Please contact Viv directly if you are interested in Farmers Market tabling!
Please be sure to join the BikeLoudWest Google group if you want up-to-date notifications of future rides, meetings, events, and opportunities to help.
Ask questions -- be sure to thank PBOT & elected leaders for good work!
