America's Best Bicycling City™!

A tongue-in-cheek scourge against getting too complacent around these parts, and politely documenting that there's still work to be done to make riding a bicycle in Portland safe, convenient and accessible for folks ages eight to eighty. Please call 503-823-SAFE to report road hazards.


Submissions greatly encouraged; send 'em to @ambrown on twitter or email the author.

"This pilot (project) should declare a missed approach, circle the airfield, and await further instructions from the tower."

If only we could dismantle the automotive hegemony in America’s Best Bicyling City the same way that Will Barton dismantled the Nets this evening.

I mean, where else are you going to park a car in America’s Best Bicyling City?

(I later found out this poor dude had a dead battery, and felt bad for him. I still do not regret posting this photo of a large car parked directly in front of the bike-path offramp on the Hawthorne Bridge).
