We are a group of people who like to ride our bikes for transportation, not just recreation. Our goals are to build community and promote the use of bicycles as transportation. We meet irregularly socialize and discuss topics of interest. Our group includes both veteran and beginning bike commuters, and we welcome you regardless of which you are, or even (especially) if you are just thinking about it. Please join us!

MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS include
* Free copies of "Bicycling Street Smarts" booklet about riding safely in traffic (contact John).
* Short-term folding bike rental, perfect for trips incorporating trains, busses, and ferries. See http://bike.meetup.com/132/pages/Folding_Bikes_for_Rent/ for details.
* Free bike stickers from www.1lesscar.com
* The ability to fully participate in the online site, such as posting messages

Please check out our partner group, PortlandGreenStreets.org. Sign up for their once-a-month green commute day on the last Friday of the month and GET FREE STUFF!

See ABOUT US in the menu bar on the left for lots of valuable advice.
