When you’re riding a bicycle, making a left turn across several lanes isn’t the easiest thing to do, especially for less-confident riders. To help make the maneuver a bit more pleasant, it’s sometimes helpful to do what traffic engineers refer to as a “two-stage left turn” (it’s also referred to as a “Copenhagen Left” or “box turn.”)

Markings and infrastructure for two such left turn movements have recently popped up in Portland.


New company produces high-end wheels in Portland

Friday, February 26th, 2010
Made in Portland.

Portland’s bike industry now includes a high-end carbon wheel builder. Corsa Concepts announced the official launch of their company today and founders Mark Duff and Greg Hudson say they offer a full line of carbon wheels (including a full carbon disc) designed for road, track, time trial, triathlon and cyclocross.

Duff is the man behind Veloforma, a company he started in January 2007 that designs and sells carbon framesets. Hudson met Duff as a racer on the Portland State Cycling team and the two are now partners in this new venture.

Commissioner Nick Fish’s promise to improve and expand access for bicycles in Forest Park might be harder to keep than he expected.

With emotions still raw over the construction of an unauthorized trail in a sensitive habitat area of the park, tonight’s meeting of the Forest Park Single Track Cycling Committee was expected to be heated and emotional. It did not disappoint. There were pleas from Portland Parks Director Zari Santner, a walkout due to anger by two bike advocates, diatribes against the illegal trail, calls (from both sides of the debate) to shut the process down and reconvene the committee, and new information that has vast implications for the future of single track riding in the park.
