Riding With the Chief Joseph Bike Train
Last week I got the chance to ride along with a bike train headed to Chief Joseph in North Portland. They have been riding every day this year, rain or shine! The four boys in the photo above are all fifth graders and have taken the Safe Routes/BTA bike safety education course at Chief Jo. I was impressed with their know-how of signals and safety. They take turns leading the train on different days after they’ve proven their safety skills.
I showed up early and had coffee with Jess and Michael, two parents who met one another at the local pool this summer and decided to start up the bike train together. Jess made some killer coffee cake for us! We joined up with some neighbors who like riding with the train. They dropped us off at Chief Jo and continued on to Portland Village School. Here they are waiting for us.
The building they live in has sweet secure bike parking for all the residents .
Their train is waiting for a safer crossing to be finished at Michigan and Rosa Parks so they can cross the street without getting off their bikes.
We had an awesome ride which kept to low-traffic Neighborhood Greenways the whole way after the sidewalk on Rosa Parks.
Thanks for the awesome ride, Chief Jo!
