    Monday Apr 27 | Bike Portland

    Do you own a car? If you don't own a car, do you use car sharing more than once a month? Do you accept rides from people? Do you use a car to travel around the state? Do you use a vehicle when you move to a new home? If the answer to more than two of these questions is yes, then according to some people, you don't qualify for the exclusive car-free bike-only club. Of course, this isn't a formal club.
