[Another day, another load for Robert.]
It’s been way too long since I joined my cargo-loving compatriots on a bike move but I’m,happy to report that the bike move(ment) is as strong as ever! *Local and international media are taking notice.
Dan Kaufmann of CrankMyChain! caught a recent one on video. You can watch it on his website or download a crispy, Quicktime version.
And remember my story about the BBC (yes, the BBC) wanting to come to Portland to film one? Well, they came and produced a big story for their Newsnight program. The story was mostly about our transportation system on the whole, but if you watch the entire video, you’ll catch a bit of a recent bike move and an interview with local cyclist Rachel Freifelder.
Read and watch the story here.
Also check out the post about the show on the BBC Newsnight blog for more global discourse on Portland’s transportation system.
*And our local Portland Tribune filed this story about a bike move on August 6th. Amazingly, the story spurred this anti bike move letter from a reader.
Then there’s the upcoming BTA bike move and some talk on the Shift list about our first-ever bi-state bike move.
Whew! If this sounds like fun (it is!) then stay tuned to the Shift email list and their Move-by-Bike web page for announcements and details on upcoming moves.
[*I added this after the post was first published.]
