BikePortland mentioned in USA Today

Couldn’t resist sharing some great news: BikePortland.org received a nice mention in a USA Today article today (5/16).

The story Gas costs push commuters to park and pedal is all about Bike to Work Month events all over the country.

Here’s the part where reporter Marisol Bello mentions Portland:

“Concerns about the environment, reducing the reliance on cars and gasoline and improving personal health fuel the bike-to-work movement, says Jonathan Maus, founder of BikePortland.org, an online biking magazine in Oregon.”

It’s not just a nice feeling to get such major exposure for Portland and this web site…it’s also good for business!

\”Well Jonathan, if its good for business why is it buried on page 2?\”

good question.

… not to say I don\’t have a healthy ego about this site.. .but I never have liked touting stuff like this on the front page. .. seems sort of amateurish to me.

if the article was a bit more portland-centric or newsworthy in some way (like the recent NY Times piece), I would feature it more prominently.

Jonathan,

Great news. Is this what caused the hiccup on the server this morning?
