Portland’s bike-friendly culture gets some love in the Portland Mercury’s big-sister weekly The Stranger. Erica C. Barnett writes in the paper’s blog (which for some reason they call SLOG):
In Seattle, when a bike lane threatened to take out a few feet of road that could otherwise be used by cars, businesses put pressure on the mayor and got the bike lane killed.
In Portland, when the city replaced prime curbside parking with parking corrals for bikes, businesses and city leaders applauded the move.
Hell, in Portland we even ride our bikes on the freeway 😉
