Below are the faces and names of just a few of the people who have worked hard for over three years to develop the Portland Bicycle Plan for 2030 — the best bike plan in America.
It has been a long road to get here, and without the dedication of our advo-crats in the Portland Building it would not be as stellar as it is. There are obviously many, many more people that helped make this plan great. To everyone who was a part of this effort: Thank you.
For anyone interested in going back down the road, browse the 66 articles of Bike Plan coverage in my archives dating back to February ’07. From the rides Roger Geller led to gather public input, to the policies in the plan, to the infamous funding cut by Mayor Potter and much more.
I hope the stories and photos serve as a monument to this effort. And remember, while the relationship between BikePortland and PBOT has changed a lot since my coverage of this plan began, one thing has not changed — my deep respect and appreciation for the work you all do on our behalf.
