With damaged roads, no power, and public transportation shut down after a major disaster, what can you do?  This is where all those bikes in your backyard come in. 

Access to gas stations is going to be difficult and a bike can handle a road damaged like this much more easily. There are plenty of great organiza- tions and resources in the Portland metro area who would love to help you get up to speed with biking.
