Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year and say thanks for making 2010 great.
It was a year of big changes for BikePortland and for bicycling in this city in general. I’ll share more thoughts on the big ideas and politics that shaped 2010 from a bike perspective next week; but right now I just want to say thanks.
I’m extremely proud to be a part of this community (online and off) and everyone — our advertisers, donors, readers, and contributors — who come together to make this site tick. 2010 was sort of a reflective and transitional year for me and the site. We’ve got some big changes coming next year.
Cheers to the New Year and enjoy the weekend! See you in 2011!
