Washington County, OR Traffic Awareness Day

For those of you in that neck of the woods. It looks like they need volunteers and possibly more businesses who will host their signs.

increase awareness of bicycles on our roadways.

I'll be a team leader at the location at Hwy 26 & Cornell, from 7am to
9am. I have one confirmed volunteer and need 3 more. There are other
locations as well that need colunteers. As Zach suggested, please check
out and contact Hal Ballard (contact info on
the website) if you can help out in the a.m. or p.m.

Thanks for your support!!

Subject: [shift] Wash Co Bike Safety Campaign

I am helping with a Washington County Bicycle Safety Campaign, sponsored
by the BTA, Wash Co. Bicycle Transportation Coalition, Bike Gallery,
City of Beaverton, Portland Velo, etc. etc.

As most of you know, this past June, Tim O'Donnell, 66, was struck and
killed while riding his bicycle with a group of friends. This tragedy
brought increased attention to the safety of cyclists using Washington
County roads. Tim's wife, Mary, established a memorial fund to address
this problem. The Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA), working with
the Washington County Bicycle Transportation Coalition (WashCo BTC), is
spearheading an effort to increase awareness of these serious safety

The campaign will include life-sized cutouts of people with their bikes
that will remind motorists that bicyclists are their relatives, friends,
coworkers and neighbors "and we bike". The cutouts will be placed
around in front of businesses and community gathering spots around the
The message is, "Be careful; the cyclist could be someone you know."

This campaign includes a Traffic Awareness Day on Tues, Sept 18th and a
Complete Tim's Ride event on Sat, Sept 22nd as well as many other
actitivies. We are looking for volunteers for a variety of venues,
dates, and locations.

Check out the web site for more info: to
volunteer or get involved.
