I know it’s cheesy and cliche, but I couldn’t resist.
Here’s the bike stuff in Portland that I’m most thankful for. I encourage you to share yours if you’d like.
I’m most thankful for:
- Portland’s visionary transportation activists and politicians that laid the groundwork for our existing bikeway network (check out this cool animation of how far we’ve come).
- The Eastbank Esplanade, The Springwater Corridor and the bike-friendly Steel, Hawthorne, and Broadway bridges.
- The many people who have given me the feedback, guidance and support (both financial and technical) that make this site possible (you know who you are!).
- The creativity, intelligence and energy of citizen activists, mostly coming from Shift to Bikes. From Breakfast on the Bridges to Pedalpalooza, you folks continue to be a huge inspiration.
And finally, I know it’s not technically “bike stuff” but I’m extremely grateful for my wife Juli and her patience and understanding while I pour my heart into making this site a success.
What about you?
