The Oregon Coast Pathway is a bold vision to build a multi-use pathway from Astoria to Brookings that would be completely accessible to users of all ages and abilities. This would be an unprecedented and ambitious project without any directly comparable example in the United States.

PORTLAND BICYCLE SUPPORT FUND

SHIFT

SHIFT revels in expressing Portland’s creative bike culture through bike fun events intended to highlight the positive contributions of bicycling for the community at large. We have a small online presence (web & mailing list). Events are DIY by the community - we just give folks a platform to do their funnest work on.

SHIFT was born of the fond memories of BikeSummer, which was an annual event that came to Portland in 2002, and we have celebrated each subsequent summer with our largest work - Pedalpalooza - an annual summer bike fun festival that still parties in the streets every year! Many spin offs - the PDX World Naked Bike Ride, Breakfast on the Bridges, and more - have come out of the Portland bike fun community that SHIFT is a vibrant part of.

WHY ISN'T ANYONE TALKING ABOUT THIS?

The 'Why Isn't Anyone Talking About This?' podcast is an inquisitive, authentic look into the relationship between justice and the built environment. Conversations with leaders, fighters, and everyday people hoping and working for change.

WORLD NAKED BIKE RIDE

It's a protest against traffic violence, oil dependence, and body shaming. Many cities have World Naked Bike Rides, but Portland's is the largest and, in our opinion, the most fun.

A lighthearted protest against our societies dependence on fossil fuels, a commentary on the vulnerability of cyclists (why we're naked) and an opportunity to celebrate diversity in the human body. The WNBR is also just goofy fun.
