Portland sets the pace

My friend Bob in Portland, Oregon, took time away from his relentless hunt for Bigfoot to forward the following item from the Willamette Week, 03.02.07:

Portland transportation officials calculate there were 12,000 daily bike trips in 2006 across the Hawthorne, Steel, Broadway and Burnside bridges alone. And U.S. Census data shows the percentage of trips by bike in Portland is 50 percent higher than in Seattle and twice that of San Francisco. (Read more.)
Impressive. The City of Roses is truly setting the standard for bicycling promotion by major cities.

Even Sasquatch like to bike over Portland bridges, leave no footprints that way, hee-hee.
