I love observing bike traffic and snapping photos of people as they ride.
I think we can learn a lot from photos like these. Images of people using our bikeways help us get beyond the statistics and the online debates. They humanize bicycling. They help dispel stereotypes. They inform us with new ideas about bike styles and clothing that work well in Portland and they inspire us with a sense of community and shared experience.
Below are some photos taken in the past few weeks. The locations are N Flint Avenue near Hancock and N Broadway between Wheeler and Ross…
What else can we learn from these images?
— I plan to continue this series and will set up in locations throughout Portland. See more photos from this series in the Gallery.

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 (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with class and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
