2023: New Year, New Opportunities

BikeLoud members,

we have had an explosive year in 2022. We grew so much this year, it's hard to state in a single newsletter. But a quick recap and some highlights:

  • Lead over 50 PedalPalooza Rides!
  • Handed out over 1,000 Valentine's cards offering #BikeLove for all street users
  • Organized over a dozen policy rides with city staff and community-builders
  • Wrote a total of 10 letters supporting a variety of actions to make biking better for Portlanders
  • Fundraised for Portland's first community advocacy trike to be used at all future advocacy events.
  • Worked with Hacienda CDC to provide parking-protected bike lanes on NE Killingsworth Street
  • Started weekly tabling at both the PSU Farmers Market and the Woodstock Farmers Market
  • Sued the City of Portland for not following the Pedestrian and Bicycle Bill
  • Participated in our first Park(ing) Day event at City Hall
  • Grown from 400 subscribers, to over 1,000
  • Helped facilitate a vigil and memorial ride after the death of Martin Crommie
  • Did our first annual Family Bikepacking Trip
  • Managed community building events like Sundays on Going
  • Corked and provided traffic management for the bustling Alameda Bike Bus
  • Helped provide protest assistance for this year's Youth Climate Strike
  • Co-organized rally with Oregon Walks and The Street Trust for a human-protected bike lane after the death of Sarah Pliner
  • SO much more

We really appreciate everyone who has committed time to make all these things possible, even as a grassroots, all-volunteer group!
