Portland State University
Center for Transportation Studies
Fall 2007 Transportation Seminar Series

Speaker: Eric Lundgren
Topic: The Wheels of Fortune: Weather Prophet Pague, Governor Geer, & Portland’s Original Network of Cycle Paths

A little over a century ago Portland was building and enjoying a network of dedicated bicycle paths. For a brief and glorious half-decade, bicycles were a focus for road-planning and road-building. At a time when Portland seeks to gain Platinum-level recognition as a Bicycle Friendly Community, we can look back at a few of the ingredients in Portland’s first golden age of bicycling.
