Take an Afternoon Bike Break

We’ll help you and your bike get ready to roll with tips on safe riding and easy maintenance.  We’ll explain some of the special markings and bikeways you’ll find along the way. And we’ll find out what’s new with BIKETOWN, Portland’s bikeshare system.  Plus, we take your questions live.   

Tune in the last Friday of the month, May through September. 

Bike Break is a presentation of Portland Sunday Parkways and is brought to you by SmartTrips, Community Cycling Center, Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), and made possible with support from Metro and the Federal Transit Administration. 

This Sunday Parkways Bike Break will take place Friday May 28th at 3 pm. To join the live class on go to our Sunday Parkways Facebook page or join directly through zoom.  Click here to join by zoom.

Your hosts: 

Timo works in PBOT’s SmartTrips program, leading Portland By Cycle tours of the city’s great bikeways, hosting classes on Cycling Essentials and more, and editing PBOT’s series of bike and walk maps.  He is a Barista Emeritus of Breakfast on the Bridges

Matt is the Volunteer and Events Manager for the Community Cycling Center. He most recently lived in Salt Lake City where he coordinated a mentor program for refugee youth and climbed as much as possible. When he is not working you can find Matt fiddling with fountain pens, hiking, climbing, reading, playing board games, or bumbling around town on his bike. 

Maddeline is the Community Cycling Center’s Youth Programs Manager. She joined the CCC in February 2018 after studying Recreation at the University of Georgia and spending a couple years as a local bicycle mechanic.  She helps create and manage the magic behind the summer bike camp program and provides support for camp staff. Sometimes you may see her in and around the shop as well!
