The Lloyd TMA's goal is to have 10% of all commute trips to the district made on a bike. To support this goal, the TMA offers a range of resources to bike commuters. Our Commuter Connection store offers bike maps, basic bike gear, and everything you need to fix a flat. We offer events throughout the year covering topics from basic bike maintenance to bike laws. We also have an active bike committee that meets on the third Tuesday of every month. Click the links above to find out more, or contact Lindsay at 503-236-6441 or lindsay(at)lloydtma(dot)org.
Path Closures, Detours and Delays
The Lloyd TMA will send additional information about these closures through your company Transportation Coordinator as they become available. “Like” the Lloyd TMA on Facebook or follow our Twitter feed for additional alerts affecting Lloyd District commuters.
Lloyd District Bikeways Projects
Several Bike Committee members are serving on the City's Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) for Lloyd District bikeway improvement projects. Projects include the NE 12th Avenue bridge, NE Holladay Street, and Williams/Wheeler/Vancouver.
If you don’t have a bike and would like to try a safe and leisurely guided ride around Lloyd, this program is for you! The only requirement is that you work in the Lloyd District. We lend you a bicycle and helmet, and arrange for a bike companion or two to guide you. You'll also receive a new rider orientation kit. To sign up, email or call 503-236-6441.

**There are many high traffic volume streets with high auto speeds that have bike lanes. Make sure that you are familiar with the roads before biking on them. A blue line on the map does not necessarily mean a low traffic volume street. Plan your route on bike boulevards for the quietest auto traffic streets.
All TriMet and C-TRAN buses are equipped with racks that hold two bikes. Each MAX train has space for 4 bikes per car, and WES Commuter Rail allows bikes as well. For more information call the Bikes on TriMet hotline at (503) 962-7644

Bike Law Information
Swanson, Thomas & Coon Attorneys at Law have published Ray Thomas's helpful "Pedal Power: A Legal Guide for Oregon Bicyclists." This informative guide outlines your rights and responsibilities as a cyclist.
The Sullivan's Gulch Trail will be an east-west pathway through the heart of Portland, an uninterrupted, safe, off-street link between the Eastbank Esplanade, the Willamette River Greenway, the I-205 Trail, and the Springwater Corridor. There will be a smooth, accessible grade for bicyclists, walkers, skaters, and physically-challenged users along the entire length of the trail. The Bike Committee is interested in how the trail and the Holladay Street ped/bikeway concept can intersect. For more information, go to http://www.sullivansgulchtrail.org.
The committee meets at noon on the third Tuesday of each month at Parametrix, 700 NE Multnomah St, Suite 1100. It’s an informal environment with an open forum for discussing issues that effect cyclists in the Lloyd District. Volunteer to be a committee member or simply work on a project that interests you. The Bike Committee focuses on creating a community of bike riders in the district, introducing people to the fun of biking, and increasing district participation in events and incentive programs. So bring your lunch and ideas— we'll see you at the next meeting.
