I'm curious as to what the traffic/bike saftey is like on a couple roads;

SW Scholls Ferry Rd - Commuting to or from beaverton & Portland
SW Patton Rd - Commuting to or from beaverton & Portland
W Burnside - Commuting to or from beaverton & Portland

I've only taken SW Scholls Ferry from Hall to Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, but it has a nice shoulder/bike lane the entire way. For getting into downtown from there, I would take Multnomah over to Terwilliger and then hook up with Barbur Blvd.

I take BHH everyday from Hillsdale to downtown Beaverton. It can be a pain if traffic is heavy; cut off at Jameson and use the 5th street underpass to avoid the mess at 217. Patton can be a blast but not much room to move so bike with speed; the shoulders on Patton are a joke. Burnside burns on the way up and I grin all the way down. BTW, watch the stormdrains on the bike lanes on Scholls ferry. They are large and get nasty when wet.
