Our Top 10 stories of 2023

I’m working on a larger year-in-review post (hopefully out later today and then I’m off until 2024!); but before that comes out I thought it’d be fun to look at the most popular stories we posted here all year.

Below are our ten most read stories of 2023:

I don’t ride or socialize with the “cycling community” so I’m not aware of any follow-up to the Royal Johnson story from October.

It all sounded very scary and then … nothing – which is fortunate! Did the guy move, or something? I just hope he is getting the help he needs.

Thanks for another year of great reporting on cycling in Portland!

Nothing happened. The people at shift 2 bikes decided to delist the Thursday night ride (because people apparently can’t be trusted to decide on their own what rides to attend), Royal started his own separate Thursday night ride, and the toxic positivity people that were canceling everyone all summer, started their own “safe ride”. So basically it’s a shit show right now.

How many people read each one?

It would be interesting to see how many single-user addresses there were, versus commenters and users going back repeatedly to read comments (or to write comments) versus the same person having multiple addresses.
