My younger brother is in town. On his very first day in Portland we joined up with Friends of Trees, loaded up the trailer and planted trees around the neighborhood. Our crew (an all bicycle crew), after getting lost and crossing the freeway a couple times too many, planted six trees around NE Glisan and 73rd, including two in a much needed spot on Burnside.
Overall there was a great turnout for the event, and the weather was brilliant. We put a total of 230 trees in the ground that day, and I learned that plantings happen every week.
The new trailer made at Rejuiced Bikes worked out great! That bin fit in well, and the bucket on the back is very useful. It drew a lot of attention.
Not a bad intro to Portland, I think he's hooked.

When you order your new bike pannier or convertible backpack pannier you’ll need to select the hook size that best fits your bike’s cargo rack. These hooks—two near the top of the pannier—slot over the horizontal tube(s) of the cargo rack and then a bottom hook on a bungee holds tension for a secure fit.
While it’s a simple system, one of the most common questions we get is: what’s the right hook size for my bike? Click to read more.
