Welcome Bike Fun readers

Posted by on July 29th, 2005 at 2:10 am

If you’re just clicking over from the Bike Fun blog on Oregonlive.com…welcome! I hope you like the new look (and name) of my blog. I’ve still got a lot of work to do to make this a valuable resource for the Portland bike community, so I hope you’ll be patient while I tweak things around.

So you might be wondering how BikePortland.org is different than the old Bike Fun blog?

  • You can now search through all 150 or so posts. Go ahead, type in “ice cream” and see what you get!
  • You can leave comments!
  • You can check out the Bike Portland photostream on Flickr.
  • You can sign up for email notification whenever a new entry is posted.
  • And much more…stay tuned for more features and content coming soon.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael

    Re: Safe biking
    I like your list of “do’s.” I thought of another. Know the laws governing biking in Oregon and the municipalities we ride in and obey them. Signal, ride on the correct side of the road, etc. We can’t expect auto drivers to respect us if we don obey the laws.
