350 by Bike!
About The Event
Meet at the Sanders Residence 1824 SE Oak St, Portland OR 97214 at 11 am with your bikes. Kids are welcome! We will depart at 11:30 am and commute by bike to the Climate Action Now event at the Memorial Colliseum (details here: http://www.moving-planet.org/events/us/portland/527).
Bring earth-friendly bike decorations (or use those we provide) and plan to pause at Buckman Elementary School to arrange all our bikes into a "350" to be photographed from the top of the infamous "big" slide.
We'll hang out at the Climate Action Now event until it ends at 3 pm, then ride back to our house for refreshments.

Since this is a family-friendly bike event on city streets, we will have some specific instructions for you before we leave.
There are a couple intersections with railroad tracks where we are going to walk our bikes to avoid spills.
We will ride single-file in groups of 4. The leader of each group will make decisions about when to cross streets for all 4 bikes and will keep his/her group together.
One bike length distance between bikes at all times.
Proceed sedately. View this as sort of a "parade" for Moving Planet. Our bikes will be decorated and we want to take our time so everyone can see us and even stop us to ask questions. Translation: this is not a race :)
