On Sunday evening, September 12, Ken Gart (right) and Mayor Hickenlooper (left), participated in an urban bike tour of Portland. Filled to capacity, this 40 person tour was offered as part of the Denver Metro Leadership Foundation’s annual city to city leadership exchange – which this year hosted 125 executives in an intense two 2 day exchange with their counterparts in Oregon.
The program’s participants were divided into three groups: those touring the city on bicycle; those walking along the riverfront to experience the pedestrian bridges and walkways; and those exploring Portland’s famed Pearl District.
Now in its 21st year, the Leadership Exchange program brings Denver’s business and civic leaders together to discuss innovations and best practices of a city facing relevant business and policy issues.
Among the cities the group has visited over the years are Seattle, Minneapolis, Toronto and San Diego.
Nice helmets, guys!
