Bicycle Transportation Alliance
I am a supporter of the bicycle movement which helps connect neighborhoods with safer streets to your community. By supporting BTA, our voice is heard when advocating for more funding, stronger policies and educational programs for kids. As an added perk, discounts are available to over 80 bikes shops and businesses in and around Portland.

I am consistently energized by our generous, energetic, inspirational members.

The PDNA is comprised of members who live, work, or own property in the Pearl District. We work together to keep the neighborhood clean, safe, and fun.
