What’s to love about Portland? (Through the eyes of Willie Weir)

Posted by on February 12th, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Author, columnist and “adventure cyclist” Willie Weir recently rolled through Portland. While here he soaked up our bike culture, interviewed locals, and snapped some fantastic photographs. The result was a feature article in Adventure Cycling magazine and a nifty audio slideshow that shows Portland through the eyes of an experienced traveler and unabashed bike lover.

Since Sunday is Valentine’s Day and many of us are still feeling the bike love following yesterday’s historic adoption of the Bike Plan, I thought I’d share Willie’s video. Watch, Portland: What’s to Love?, below…

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. That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. If you see an inconsiderate or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan and Michael

    Great article. I laughed really hard when I read his comment about the bad 80’s music. :-)
