And thus May Green Streets Day in Portland, Maine, dawns bright and ... well, okay, gray and soggy. Again. But the spirits of the intrepid Portland Bike Commuters, who after all have braved worse weather than this, remain undaunted! (Right?)POLL OF THE WEEK
I'm extending the poll from last week, since I only got 8 responses, and I'd like to have more. What type of events should I be spending my time organizing? You tell me
.VALET BIKE PARKING
I'd like more signups for Westbrook, next Friday evening and all day Saturday. Have you always wanted to visit Westbrook? We're a nice little town, conveniently located at the end of the #4 Metro Bus line! Come and munch on fried dough and meet friendly people at our 30th Annual Westbrook Together Days.
I should let you know that the Old Port Festival bike parking is unfortunately in question at this point, due to a little matter of insurance. If I can work it out, I'll do it, but I can't promise it at this point. :-(UPCOMING EVENTS
