Moore noticed some major differences between the cyclists in Portland vs. other places she’s lived:
“The first thing I learned in Portland is that the bikers here…tend to follow the rules. They wear helmets (I have since bought my first), they signal when they turn (I learned the motions); they equip their bikes with lights (and then use them). After being yelled at on three occasions, I broke down and did the same.”
She then makes a plea to motorists to consider, “biking a little more and driving a little less.”

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
