Pedalpalooza updates: New poster art, ride highlights

2020 Pedalpalooza poster artist Yuna Cheong and one version of her work. We are now less than one month from the start of an extra-long Pedalpalooza. And after what we’ve all been through this past year, we can all use a calendar-full of fun social rides to buoy our spirits. Before sharing a few rides that have already been listed, a highlight of this year’s poster is due. The official event poster is one of the best things about Pedalpalooza and this year’s edition (below) continues that...

Winter storm blankets parts of Midwest, disrupts travel

By Josh Funk | Associated Press OMAHA, Neb. — A major winter storm dumped more than a foot of snow on parts of the middle of the country while another system blanketed parts of the Southwest with snow, disrupting travel for a second consecutive day Tuesday and shuttering many schools. Several coronavirus testing sites were closed Monday and Tuesday in Nebraska and Iowa, and both states saw 12 to 15 inches of snow in places. At least 4 inches of snow was expected through Tuesday across most of an...

Especially one that combines our election enthusiasm with cycling. Portlander and creative bike activist extraordinaire Kiel Johnson is organizing a ‘Bike the Vote’ ride that will be a combination get-out-the-vote and political advertising campaign. Riders will slow-roll through neighborhoods to remind folks to vote while their...

Last night we all rode together thanks to Black Girls Do Bike

(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) After months of quarantine and weeks of heavy-hearted news and protests, Nichole Watson and Keyonda McQuarters just wanted to let loose and go on a bike ride. So they posted it on Facebook and told their friends to join. They expected a few dozen people. What they got was closer to 2,000. “Sometimes you need to take the lane and you need to demand that people see you and make space for you and that’s what today is about.”— Nichole Watson “I’m ...

Thousands of people on bikes support Black Lives Matter protest as march takes over I-84

(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) Thousands of Portlanders hopped on bikes last night to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement. Two rides coalesced and took over major streets and bridges before meeting up at the Rose City Justice/BLM march basecamp at Revolution Hall in southeast Portland. From there they joined a massive march that took over Interstate 84 and ended on inner Northeast Alberta Street. It was a night full of people power and powerful symbolism: We marc...

Four rides to support Black lives

A family at last night’s march in northeast.(Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) If you’ve been to one of the protests in Portland you’ve seen that the number of people on bikes is growing each night. Now community leaders have planned several bike rides that will amplify and/or spin-off the protests. After being all but shut down due to the pandemic, rides and events are once again being posted to the BikePortland Calendar. In particular there are five on the horizon (so far) I want to make...

PBOT asks King neighborhood to decide on greenway diverter

PBOT design for NE Killingsworth that aims to reduce the amount of people who drive on 9th. The city’s effort to create a low-stress, family-friendly street between the Lloyd and Woodlawn neighborhoods received yet another test last night. Despite steady rain there was a sizable turnout at a meeting held in the King Neighborhood to hear more about plans for the northern section of the project. The Portland Bureau of Transportation began this project in March 2016. Back then they heard ver...

Pedalpalooza, Portland’s biggest bike festival, is just one month away

One month until you can spread our wings and fly into Pedalpalooza! (Photo: Eric Thornburg/No.Lens.Cap) It’s still a month away, but it’s so big you need at least that much time to get ready. Yes, of course I’m talking about Pedalpalooza. Official poster by Catherine “Cat” Odell Pedalpalooza starts June 1st and lasts the entire month. It will be the 17th time Portlanders have paid homage to free bike fun in a way that seems to get bigger and better every year. This time around I want every...

PBOT decides on 9th Avenue for route of future Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway

Close-up of new proposal showing where the greenway will jog over to 9th. See full map below.(Graphic: City of Portland) The Portland Bureau of Transportation has shifted course on their Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway project. Citing a lack of “broad community support,” for the Northeast 7th Avenue route option, they’ll announce later today that the new greenway will be on Northeast 9th Avenue. (Update: Here’s the official announcement.) The change in plans comes despite major suppo...

PBOT’s latest greenway proposal includes pocket parks, mini-roundabouts, and a dead-end for drivers

The quest for more humane streets sometimes means making them look more like parks.

Well over two years into discussions about a north-south neighborhood greenway that will someday connect the Lloyd District to Woodlawn, the City of Portland has finally shared concrete design plans.

PBOT begins effort to transform NE 7th Ave into a “calm, local street”

It was a big crowd.(Photos: J.

When complete, the route will connect the forthcoming Sullivan’s Crossing bridge (cross I-84) to Dekum Street in Woodlawn with a low-stress street where people can feel walking and biking.

Today: Meet the man riding 2,000 miles with a 350-pound rhino (statue) named Lunar

Matt Meyer and Lunar the rhino in Portland yesterday. You can meet up with him today at Irving Park. (Photo: Joe Rowe) I’ve seen a lot of people use bicycles to raise awareness for various causes over the years, but this one just might take the cake for its combination of eye-catching stunt and serious issue. Matt Meyer was born and raised in the wilds of the South African bush — but now he’s doing something that’s in many ways even more adventurous: Riding 2,000 of the west coast pulling a l...

NE 7th Avenue upgrades likelier, but diverter opponents are organizing too

NE 7th Avenue is technically a local street, but it’s become heavily used by cars as an alternative to MLK.(Photo: M.Andersen/BikePortland) Advocates for turning NE 7th Avenue into a low-stress neighborhood greenway scored a significant victory this month, but opponents of that change are pushing back. The Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission voted April 12 to shift the official designation of “major city bikeway” from 9th Avenue to 7th Avenue. That change that would line up wit...
