Commuting and legal workshops
The Street Trust regularly leads public bike Commute Clinics around the Metro-region (and sometimes the state), and hosts bike legal clinics at our Portland office and Portland area REI locations. Check out the Bike More Challenge events page to attend an upcoming clinic. You can learn more about our clinics here.
