The ABC group is rolling into Sunday Parkways-NE with much bike knowledge in tow. The ABC group, also known as Andando en Bicicletas en Cully, is comprised of residents of Hacienda who are committed to organizing and providing programs to promote bicycling.
In 2010, the ABC group bloomed from a collaboration between Hacienda Community Development Corporation and Community Cycling Center after they launched the Understanding Barriers to Bicycling Project. The group ignited by the project saw an opportunity to promote physical activity, community bonding and address social isolation for residents living in predominantly immigrant communities in Portland. The group continues to receive support by the two nonprofits in which it found inspiration, and now has been going strong for four years. It is bringing its accumulated bike knowledge to Sunday Parkways on July 27th in the form of a Bike Fair. The Bike Fair can be found at the Rigler ES Activity Area (Rigler School -5401 NE Prescott St, Portland, OR) at Sunday Parkways.
