As we continue to digest the latest bike PR debacle spurred by reporting in The Oregonian yesterday, let’s take a look at a graph shall we?
Smart BikePortland reader and commenter Bjorn Warloe took budget numbers from the last three years and put them in a simple graph.
The Oregonian story painted a picture that funding for “bike projects” was coming at the expense of paving and “motor vehicle projects.” That’s one way to frame it I guess; but when you look at the overall spending picture, as Warloe’s graphs help us do, you see a different picture.

Can someone put this same data into a less boring graphic representation please =)
Cool infographic anyone?
