Welcome to the latest installment in our ongoing series documenting people who ride bikes in Portland.
This morning I photographed people for about 20 minutes or so at the Albina/Mississippi MAX station on N. Interstate Avenue. It was nearly freezing out, so these photos have the added benefit of showing us how folks dress to beat the chill.
Like I mentioned last time, I think these basic photos of people riding can tell us a lot. What type of riders does our existing infrastructure attract? Does rider type vary in different neighborhoods and on different types of bikeways?
For the record, the location where today’s photos were taken is a major road that is shared with motor vehicle and light rail traffic. MAX runs down the center of the road and there’s one, narrow motor vehicle lane and one five-foot bicycle vehicle lane.
See the photos below (and bonus points if you know the world famous bicycle messenger I snapped)…
Did you learn anything from these photos?
