The official opening of a Cycle Track on SW Broadway marks a new phase in Portland's
development as a world-class bicycling city and reaffirms Portland State's commitment to
sustainability. A Cycle Track protects bike riders from downtown traffic by placing them in a
buffered bike lane between the curb and on-street parking. This event will be celebrated with
a press conference for the demonstration project.
Opening remarks will be given by Portland Mayor Sam Adams followed by Portland State
President Wim Wiewel. Also in attendance will be Scott Bricker, executive director of the
Bicycle Transportation Alliance.
