has a major crush on biking.
Oregon Public Broadcasting’s (OPB) Oregon Field Guide program has begun to reflect our state’s decidedly bike-centric personality.
The program, which covers all of Oregon’s natural, artistic, and social splendor, has had several segments devoted to biking recently.
I also received an email recently from OPB spokesperson Carol Howard. She got in touch to remind me to tune to the show this Thursday (8:30pm, 3/26) for a segment on biking in Portland. Here’s the description posted on the Field Guide website:
“Portland boasts more bicycle riders than most U.S. cities so it’s no wonder city planners are doing all they can to make the area as bike friendly as possible.”
In addition, I’ve gotten word that OPB crews will be on hand to document the pain and glory of the upcoming De Ronde Van Oeste Portlandia ride for a future Field Guide segment.
Oregon Field Guide is an excellent program and it’s great to see them notice Oregon’s biking bounty. Learn more about the program here.
