4912 N Montana Ave Take Trimet
6:00pm, Vancouver
What, again? Is John going for some kind of bike move record?
It's true, I'm moving by bike again! I'll be moving a whole mile and a half from my current residence to Cleveland and Rosa Parks. I don't have a ton of stuff, but there will be a few big, awkward, and/or heavy things to move.

I'd love your help moving my meager collection of worldly possessions one more time. I promise, this will be the last one for a while...

It's lumberjacks vs Magnum this time around! Your woodsiest flannel takes on your loudest Hawaiian shirts. Bring your moustache or grizzly facial hair if you've got 'em!

PORTLAND BICYCLE COUNT TRAINING (EAST PORTLAND) Link
East Portland Neighborhood Office, 1017 NE 117th Ave Take Trimet
6:00pm
Help the City conduct the annual Summer Bike Counts.

Portland collects some of the best data on bicycle use in the country and it's all because of the tremendous support we get from volunteers. Volunteering fun! It requires only two hours of your time and the information you collectively provide us is invaluable.

All new volunteers must attend a training. It involves pizza and soda, is informative and fun and is mandatory if you haven't counted before.
