There are thousands of ways to be sustainable, which makes sustainability not only the right and smart thing to do but also fun.

Certainly, one of the most fun ways is riding a bike. It may have been a few years, or even decades, since you traveled by the two-wheel route. Still, the old saying goes that you never forget how to ride a bike.

The Portland-based organization has more than 4,500 members, with more than 100 of them coming from Lake Oswego and West Linn. The BTA is ever-increasing its effort to promote bike riding, and last fall it sponsored the first Bicycle Commuter Challenge in Lake Oswego. The event attracted an outpouring of 6,000 bike riding enthusiasts.
