  1. Please let bikers know that there are laws on how to ride on the streets. Riding two deep will get you killed.

    1. Not sure of the circumstances of this particular protest but generally Portland is a bike friendly city with lots of bike lanes, however, lately it seems there have been quite a few bike/car accidents involving just a single bike rider.
