Help Set Portland's Bicycling Agenda

Earlier this year, Portland submitted an application to the League of American Bicyclists to become a certified "bicycle-friendly community." We didn't win any awards, but the League did send back a list of detailed criteria - sort of a checklist of steps that Portland can take in order to improve.

Now, the City wants the public's input on which of those steps we should be taking first. Should the city invest its limited resources into more bike lanes? Education and enforcement? Making critical connections easier to bike across?

Help us decide, this Saturday morning:

Saturday, Jan. 9, 2009
from 9am to Noon
Merrill Rehearsal Hall, entrance on Myrtle Street behind City Hall.

Please register ahead of time by following this link, so that we'll know how many people to expect.

I'll bring donuts from Tony's!
