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 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.
