Portland Sunday Parkways promotes healthy active living through a series of free events opening the city's largest public space - its streets - to walk, bike, roll, and discover active transportation while fostering civic pride. Who attends Sunday Parkways, what is its purpose in Portland, and what is its future?
Join guest host Mychal Tetteh, who was recently announced as the next Executive Director for the Community Cycling Center, and Steph Routh, who recently announced her transition from Executive Director of Oregon Walks.
We will be joined in studio by special guest Adonia Lugo to talk about Sunday Parkways in other cities.
