Join us September 16th as we raise awareness for the Coalition for a Livable Futures (CLF) work to enhance the quality of life for future generations of Portlanders. And what better way to do it than by bicycle?
Bike to the Future is a tour of urban sustainability by bicycle. The 28 mile route is relatively flat and takes you to interactive destinations where you will learn about affordable and sustainable housing, green building, smart urban design, community gardens, urban ecology, local food, alternative transportation and other elements of a vibrant, livable community.
This ride is fully supported and includes course markings, printed ride guides, support vehicles, mechanical and medical aides on course, water and nutritional snacks at rest stops, a finish line festival, dinner and much more. The easy route has many relaxing stops along the way and is perfect for riders of all skill levels.
The ride starts and finishes at Sunnyside Environmental School. Admission is $40 and all ride amenities are included. Members of CLF partner organizations receive a $5 discount. See CLFuture.org for a list of those organizations. For more information or to sign up for the ride, please see LivabilityRide.org.
