Bike Commute Challenge month

This is a photo of our bike parking facilities at Showers Pass headquarters.  This month we compete in the Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s Bike Commute Challenge.  We encourage all employees to bike to work every day of September.

September is a fun month in Portland, summer winds to an end and cooler Fall temps tease us  in the mornings.  We brake out the base layers and rain gear trying to calculate the perfect layering for the length of our commute, the outside air temperature and our body temp.  We put the fenders back on our bikes and watch the clouds for signs of rain.  Each year hundreds of Portlanders go from fair weather riders to year round commuters.  It’s inspiring to see the bike traffic grow with each year as thousands are empowered to travel under their own power, one pedal stroke at a time.
