Portland: America’s Bike City (video)
More and more Americans are looking for ways to be greener as they move about, often by buying cars that use less gas. But the no-gas solution is also growing and that means bicycles.
Where is a great place to live if you’re an avid cyclist? The answer is Portland, Oregon, dubbed America’s most bike friendly city. Portland has not only done more than any other city to welcome bikes and bikers, it is also a center for small-scale bike manufacturing.
The city has invested $20 to 25 million to increase the bike infrastructure and now has more people commuting by bike than any other city. What a great place to live.
