Portland: The Bike City

The city of Portland, OR is regarded as one of the most bicycle friendly cities in the U.S. and even the world. What has Portland done right? Well, as this video points out, it’s a number of factors: support from the city, community history, and the general atmosphere, to name a few. A few decades ago, Portland was not a bike friendly place, per say, but it just goes to show that living amongst others who utilize the bicycle for transportation makes it easier for others to take part in the activity as well. So what can we do in cities that are not yet as bike friendly as Portland? Ride!(Sorry for the commercial at the beginning.)
