Lawsuit Update We are happy to announce that the local legal team atThomas, Coon, Newton & Frost elected to join with Scott Kocher atForum Law Group to represent BikeLoud PDX in our lawsuit against the City of Portland! We are excited to have such experience join BikeLoud PDX and offer their services pro-bono as we work through this once in a generation lawsuit.
Overall, this means we have profound knowledge, work output, and belief from these legal teams that we do indeed have a great reason to pursue the suit.
After filing the lawsuit on November 18th, a judge quickly signed the suit, showing that we indeed crossed our T's and dotted our I's as we move forward with the suit: fees waived!
Either way, thanks ALL for showing up and supporting BikeLoud PDX as we commit to hold the City of Portland accountable. We couldn't have gotten this far without the generous support of you, Forum Law Group, Thomas, Coon, Newton & Frost, and our dedicated members who have prepared the suit leading up to this month.
A draft e-bike rebate bill (LC 1994) is heading into the state legislature next year (Thank you Representatives Karin Power and Dacia Grayber!). BikeLoud PDX supports this bill and getting more e-bikes on Oregon's roads to replace car trips thoughout the state. It's currently being handed off to Representative Dacia Grayber (D- 35 Tigard), who will sponsor the bill this coming session. Email/callyour state repTODAY that you support this bill and wish to have their support come 2023!
Supported the weekly community-led Sundays on Goingevent!
Handed over 3,000 stickers promoting#BikeLove, and#PDXbikes
So much more!
Lastly, we couldn't have done any of the above without you: our subscriber and fellow BikeLoud PDX member.
Thanks for all the support you've done, and we know it in our hearts we can do so much more when everyone becomes the advocate they dream they can be. We hope to see you soon at an event/ride/meetup and if you can: please donate to support our cause as we continue to reach 25% Portland trips by Bike by 2030#25by2030pdx
