Bring Portland Closer to Having Mountain Bike Trails! Dec 2, 2014



The Radavist may have a global reach but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about specifics when necessary. This Tuesday night, December 2nd, the City of Portland’s Metro division while be hosting an event that will help shape the future use of the North Tualatin Mountains natural area

Read on below.

This is an area that has the potential of being granted mountain bike access.  If allowed this would give people who live and visit Portland a system of trails that would be within easy riding distance from the city. If you want to see the continued growth of trail systems in close proximity to cities around the US consider taking a look at what is happening here. The outcome of these developments could help to develop a precedent that could help your hometown develop its own trails systems.

There are a couple of ways that you can get involved,

1) Sign this Petition –

Portland City Council has put together this petition to see if people are interested in mountain bike trails in Portland. Please sign it and share on your social media outlets. Out of town signatures count as interested parties.
2) Come to this meeting on Metro’s Mountain Bike Trails

Metro is in the process of purchasing four main parcels of land and they are currently determining future recreational usage limitations. We need as many people as possible to show up to the meeting this Tuesday and express interest in developing mountain bike trails. The first meeting was comprised of primarily equestrian users and only three mountain bikers. At this second meeting, we need to stand up and truly represent the depth of interest within our community. This is a general town hall kind of  meeting so don’t expect to go into great depth about the project. If you are coming bring a helmet to show solidarity and make sure you sign in for mountain biking. More info can be found at,

The event is Dec. 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Skyline Grange, 11275 NW Skyline Blvd., Portland.
