Bicycle Boulevard on Spokane Street

Portland's push toward the 25% of trips made by bike took a small step forward in the Sellwood neighborhood with the opening of the Spokane Street Bike Boulevard. The grand opening was on a rainy day and was kicked off with some words from the Neighborhood Association president and Mayor Sam. Amelia rode the trail a bike which was a good experience for her, so we had a great time.
  We celebrated with a bike ride through the neighborhood and a review f the project. The only problem was the project was quite complete because we had some significant weather over the past few weeks, which made it hard for the crews to get to the streets.
  It was nice to see Sue Keil, the head of PBOT and to hear Sam talk about the great ideas we have. After the ride, we had treats at the Sellwood Community Center and participated in a raffle. Abby won a new bike from Sellwood Cycle Repair, so that topped off the fun for the day.
