Solo bike touring

At our December meeting, PS board member Momoko Saunders will tell us her tales of bike touring as a single female. She has ventured all over Japan, Europe, and North America; as well as made many trips in Oregon and Washington. She will share tactics, financial planning tips, talk about safety and what you can definitely expect to encounter. The road is fun but filled with peril. Be prepared, safe, and adventurous!

Momoko rides her bike to get around and as a means towards mental and physical balance. She is constantly amazed at where her bike has taken her – to many mountains and countries; into careers and relationships. She has her love for cycling to thank for her current position as Operations Director for Bike Town. Momoko is also co-chair of PBOT’s Bureau Budget Advisory Committee, and serves on both the board of the Portland Society and the Bike Farm.

  • Wednesday, December 6th, 8am-9am
  • Bike Farm, 1810 NE First Ave, just north of Broadway
