People on Bikes

Welcome to People on Bikes, a column that takes a closer look at who’s riding bikes in Portland. These pictures can tell us a lot: Who’s riding? Who’s not? What type of bikes do we ride? How do people stay cool in summer and warm in winter?

If you like bikes, bike fashion, or just have an anthropological curiosity about what people look like when they ride, you’ve come to the right place. Check the past editions below — and don’t forget to check out special editions from New York City, Copenhagen, and Colombia!
