Got plans tonight?

Bike to Blazers on Better Broadway

  • Meet at Rip City sign near Moda Center fountain
  • Weds. May 11th at 6 pm (ride leaves 6:30)
  • Facebook event page
  • We’ve teamed up with our friends at Go By Bike and Better Block PDX to support the Portland Trail Blazers and the Better Broadway project. Join us at the Moda Center for some fun and mingling at Rip City headquarters near the fountain and then ride with us up to Broadway to check out how the street has been transformed. After we learn about the project and experience it first-hand, we’ll watch the Blazers beat the Golden State Warriors in this do-or-die playoff game.

    This ride is open to non-sports fans too. We just want to encourage folks to ride Better Broadway and support the businesses along the street who might not think any of their customers ride bikes.

    Here’s what to expect:

    6:00 – Meet at the new Rip City sign on the south side of the Moda Center (south of the fountain). We’ll hang out and mingle and check the food and drink specials at Jack’s. Get your photo taken in front of the sign just like I did this morning!
    6:30 – Saddle up and roll onto NE Multnomah and head over to the start of the Better Broadway project at NE 24th and Broadway. We’ll hear more about the project and chat a bit about it.
    7:00 – Ride down Broadway and check out the transformation. We’ll end at Chen’s Dynasty (a Better Broadway sponsor!) where they’ll have cold drinks, good food and the game on TV.

    Here’s the Facebook event listing if you’re so inclined.

    Hope to see some of you out there!

    Go Blazers!
