At this last week’s Tuesday member meeting, we had a request to provide instructions on who to contact within the City of Portland to address the current climate around mountain biking in Portland. We have created a draft letter below and suggest you make the same points, but add your own personal testimony. Send your letter to Mayor Hales and the City Commissioners. If you are feeling a little more ambitious, it would be extremely meaningful to mail in a hard copy version as well.
As an avid cyclist, I would like to bring two issues to your attention. First, I urge you to support the off-road cycling master plan in your budget. I believe in healthy, active, livable communities and I promote the concept of “ride to your ride.”
It’s clearly time for a citywide plan that identifies great places for safe, recreational cycling. It’s important to me that all communities in Portland have easy access to exercise and outdoor fun.
Thank you for your consideration,
Thank you for being apart of Northwest Trail Alliance and helping us gain more access to mountain biking in Portland.
