Here are BikePortland’s traffic stats from the month of July. Two of our stories — an editorial about the “Should Cyclists Pay a Road Tax?” ad on the MAX, and an article about a bid to convert the Memorial Coliseum into a venue for bike racing, were picked up and spread widely among local news media; our story about credit card fraud at an online retailer gained national attention.
Our third most popular story this month was actually posted in mid-June — the World Naked Bike Ride is, apparently, always news.
Finally, Jonathan’s story about a three-family bike camping trip he went on a few weeks ago was the sleeper story of the month, earning a lot of enthusiastic traffic and expanding the public view of just what’s possible with kids, and without a car.
