Streetfilms, the video-journalism arm of the New York City-based Livable Streets Network, has published a film that focuses on Portland’s signature bike parking treatments: bike oases and bike corrals.
The film features PDOT staffer Greg Raisman (who was behind Portland’s first-ever corral at N. Shaver and Mississippi), Belmont-area business owner Bill Stites (he makes very cool utility trikes), and Richard Satnick, co-owner of Laughing Planet Cafe.
Satnick — who spearheaded the creation of June’s successful Cirque du Cycling event in the Mississippi neighborhood and whose cafe will be a part of the new Bike Republic plans — says in the video (below) that the on-street bike corrals have been a boon to his business; “If it were up to me there’d be nothing but bikes on this side of the street.”
Check out the film:
