Bottom Line for Portland

"I often think about life in two parts: Before I had my own bike and after. The opportunity to stand next to a kid the first time they grab the handlebars and place their feet on the pedals—the moment that carries them between two life chapters—is one of the most amazing experiences." —Rebecca, volunteer
