This group is for discussing issues related to bicycling in SW Portland, Oregon, including (but not limited to) safety, improving bicycling options, routes, events, etc.
Currently the SW Trails group is working with the City of Portland to identify potential Bicycle Boulevards, trails, bike lanes, etc. for SW Portland. We conducted a series of “ground truthing” and route planning rides in July and August, 2007. Visit the SW Bicycling Routes page for more information, including a downloadable map of proposed routes.
We have installed the open-source Mailman mailing list software on our server. This enables us to quickly and easily create community mailing lists for a variety of purposes and audiences. Sending eMail to list subscribers is simple, and automation handles the drudgery of maintaining subscriber lists. Your lists will each have their own home page (as will each subscriber), so folks will be able to locate and self-subscribe to your list. You need not know subscribers’ eMail addresses, worry about bounced eMails, etc.

At the October SW Trails meeting, we talked about using a forum on the SWNI site to trade ideas on bike routes through SW Portland. We were invited to take a SW Trails Map and mark it up with our comments. An effort is being made to solicit input from all of the neighborhoods about bike routes. I didn't see that anyone else had posted to this site relative to this topic, so I'm taking the liberty of initiating a discussion here. What follows are my comments on routes through Maplewood and SW Portland in general.
Recognizing that there are emergency preparedness situations which may not directly impact specfiic neighborhood, but rather SWNI, or the City of Portland as a whole, the SWNI Emergency Preparedness Committee has formed the SWNI NET Team. The SWNI NET Team will be available to respond to incidents such as floods, windstorms, public speaking requests and recruitment opportunities as requested by SWNI, POEM or Portland Fire Bureau.
