Portland is celebrating and we’re joining the advocacy group Street Trust for a ride they call Ain’t No Stopping Us Now!

 

We join them at Nossa Familia SE 3rd & Clay for free coffee (if you bring your mug) and a celebration ride.

 

To get there, we will ride our bikes and take the train

Bike to EXPO.

Ride MAX (with our bikes, no trikes allowed – sorry!) to PDX City Hall 5th and Jefferson MAX station.
