Recent PBOT projects and initiatives related to adaptive bicycling
Adaptive BIKETOWN pilot is furthering PBOT’s work to increase access to adaptive bicycling. PBOT’s current and past projects include:
Adaptive bikes for the Safe Routes to School in-school bike safety education program for students who would benefit from them.
One-on-one bike riding instruction to students who haven’t successfully learned how to ride a bike with the Safe Routes program.
Full scholarships for Bike First for all eligible Portland students. Bike First is a camp teaching riding skills to students with disabilities including those with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, visual impairments, and developmental delays. Safe Routes has been a key sponsor of this effort since 2008.
Purchasing and donating a trailer full of Senior Trikes to Portland Parks & Recreation for its Senior Recreation program.
