Rubber to the Road: The Gateway Green

Here’s the newest video project from River City Bicycles, dubbed “Rubber to the Road,” where the shop looks at the riding surrounding the Portland area. First up (on this site anyway) is the new Gateway Green trail network:

“Gateway Green is an enormous undertaking that’s been in the works for almost twelve years now, and this Saturday, June 24th, it’s officially opening to the public. The amount of work that went into making this a reality- both physically and politically is impressive, to say the least, but saying the finished product reflects it is an understatement. Special thanks to the Northwest Trail Alliance, Portland Parks and Recreation, and all the volunteers who put countless hours into this project to make it a reality. Gateway Green is the Portland area’s first, extensive, 25-acre mountain bike-specific park which lies just on the other side of I-205 from Rocky Butte and just a few blocks away from the Gateway Transit Center. It’s incredibly accessible by either the 205 bike path, or the Blue, Green and Red MAX lines, and is only seven miles away from River City. For more information on the park, be sure to visit www.gatewaygreenpdx.org, and we hope to see you out there soon!”
