Portlandians (the ones in Ore.) have been taking back their streets with the help of a bikeway network, created by the Portland Bureau of Transportation, which is comfortable to ride on and easy to navigate. It connects users to destinations like work, school, and the grocery store and to Portland's great parks and natural areas. Mike Houck (LF 2004) worked with Greg Riasman of PBOT to host a series of group bike rides to make sure citizens tune in to this great resource.
Read a journal about one of the rides.
