To promote bicycle safety and a healthy lifestyle and educate the community about bikes on public transit, the City is partnering with the Oregon Nurses Association (ONA) to hold the annual Transportation Safety Fair and Bike Rodeo.

Helmet Giveaway

  • The ONA Constituent Association 1 has purchased hundreds of bicycle helmets to give away to children and adults who are not able to purchase new helmets.
  • Children must check in with a parent or guardian to pick out color and style of the helmet they want. A trained volunteer will fit the helmet, demonstrating proper fitting.
  • The ONA has first-hand knowledge of the importance of teaching safe biking skills to children in order to prevent severe injuries from accidents, and has fitted more than 1,500 free bicycle helmets in the Portland metro area since 2007 to promote injury prevention.

Bike Rodeo

  • Bring Your Bike and Helmet!
  • Bring your bike and have it checked by a trained mechanic from Bikes for Humanity PDX.
  • Learn the rules of the road from Gresham bike patrol officers, and practice riding on a safety course.

The Bike Rodeo is presented by the City's Transportation Planning Division staff, volunteers, and Boy and Girl Scouts, with help from the Gresham Police.

Group Bike Ride
A group bike ride will begin at the safety information booth on the Arts Plaza, traveling through downtown Gresham to Main City Park, making a loop on the Springwater and Gresham-Fairview Trails, and returning to the Arts Plaza around 2:30 p.m.
