Take a ride on Willamette Street on Saturday

If you feel strongly about making Willamette Street more bike friendly, you can join others for a ride there tomorrow morning — that’s Saturday Feb. 11.

If you happen to be on the Bike Willamette Campaign e-mail list, you probably got the message. If not, here’s the e-mail, from Paul Moore, owner of the bike shop Arriving by Bike:

Starting this Saturday (tomorrow, Feb. 11) at 9 a.m., join me for a ride on Willamette Street and a stop at a coffee shop to contemplate how great it will be when bicycles are included in the completed street redesign. I plan on starting most Saturdays for the next few months in that manner.

Meet at Moore’s shop, at 2705 Willamette St.

Moore has been a leader in the effort to make sure better bike access is part of city plans being drawn up for the commercial stretch of Willamette Street from 20th Avenue or so down to 29th.

I’d be there for the ride, but I just learned about it and have a prior commitment, as they say. Maybe next week.

    They need to work on their PR savvy. Ride info isn’t showing up on either their own website or Facebook page.

    I’d join in, but in order to get there in time I’d have to be out the door around 7:30… And I am NOT a morning person… -_-
