Self-described “transportation diplomat” Aaron Tarfman has launched a new blog. “Innovative Transport” will chronicle his bikey adventures and share his insights on urban planning and infrastructure.

Tarfman is a professional architect who rode his bicycle across country from New York City to Portland in 2003 and has become a devoted volunteer and friendly fixture on the local bike scene ever since. He plays an active role with the Exchange Cycle Touring Club, Shift, and a fledgling group advocating for more car free streets.

You might remember my post last winter about Tarfman’s fantastic collection of virtual tours of Portland bike routes.

His new blog already includes posts about his Bridge Pedal couch-in (which was referenced in an Oregonian article) and a recent ride up to the snowline on Mt. Hood.
