Summertime might not have quite reached the sky yet, but it’s sprouted in Portlanders’ hearts. I’ve got evidence.
Now and then, Portland Afoot publishes a feature we call “Craigsbest” – a selection of the weirdest and wonderfullest transit-related missed connections of the month, as posted on portland.craigslist.org. It’s a delicious, frequently hilarious little window into Portlanders’ inner lives.
A few months ago, I decided to try tracking bike-related connections, too. Unlike public transit, it turns out, bike-based flirting in Portland is extremely seasonal – and June seems to be harvest time. Last month, more than 50 posts mentioned bikes.
