Support singletrack in Forrest Park

By Christian on October 14th, 2010

Saw this on the boards. I’m going to try to make it.

“… Northwest Trail Alliance is organizing a group ride in Forest Park at 9 am on
Saturday, October 16 to demonstrate Portlanders’ desires for increased
singletrack bicycling opportunities in the park. The ride will take place on the
access road that winds through the park, which is legally open to bicycles, and
will be preceded by a short rally, fueled by free, fresh-brewed coffee.

“On Saturday, riders will gather at 9 am at the Thurman Gate–the far north end
of NW Thurman Street–where statements will be read and coffee imbibed. At 9:30,
the ride will commence on the Leif Erikson access road. All ages and abilities
are encouraged to participate. If driving to the event, Northwest Trail Alliance
encourages riders to park down the hill from the Thurman Gate so as not to clog
the access.”

Local politicians need to know that we give a crap about parks and that we vote.
