Seattle to Portland Rider(s) Needed!!

The National Bicycle Greenway (NBG) needs a cyclist (multiple riders OK) to get the Friday May 14 Seattle NBG Day proclamation down to Portland City Hall for Portland NBG Day on Monday May 17. Both events take place at noon and the Cascade Bike Club can supply routing information for this 172 mile connection. You can be a part of both ceremonies both of which usually result in media attention or you can just make it a weekend ride and pick the Seattle's document up anytime after 2PM on Friday from Angle Lake Cyclery and deliver it any time before 10AM on Monday May 17 at Coventry Cycle Works in downtown Portland. To find out more about the NBG go to To learn more about the exciting 3rd Annual National Mayors' Ride which will visit visit 24 west coast cities, 6 east coast cities, and 41 in all before it ends in Chicago on July 30, go to . After the ride kicks off from Seattle, a new Mayors' Ride city this year, other relay legs will find athletes on Rowbikes, a unicyclist pedaling from San Francisco to the Windy City, Tampa FL creating a huge celebration send off of its own and antique HiWheelers turning heads in the SF Bay Area and along the Sacramento American River Parkway, etc, all as Claire Machado's band, C.A.M. Engine, prepares population centers from LA to Chicago for the riders' arrivals with music.
