Gresham Celebrates National Bike Month
Mayor Shane T. Bemis proclaimed May as “Bike Month” in Gresham. The City is celebrating by offering opportunities to ride, volunteer and have fun throughout the month.
“The League of American Bicyclists named Gresham a Bicycle Friendly Community in 2010 for our extensive network of bike-friendly routes,” said Transportation Planning Manager Katherine Kelly. “Gresham has earned this honor three years in a row by continually improving cycling infrastructure and providing activities for cyclists.”
There are over 117 miles of bike lanes throughout Gresham and popular bike routes include the Springwater Corridor, Gresham Fairview Trail and Main City Park Spur Trail. Last year 177,643 bicyclists used Gresham’s segment of the Springwater Trail and 18,197 bicyclists used the Gresham-Fairview Trail.
