Portland Bikeways Go Platinum

September 27th, 2012

Portland, already famous for its innovative transportation initiatives such as its twin light rail systems, pedestrian-friendly downtown and skateboard lanes, once again received top honors for its bicycle program.

The League of American Bicyclists awarded Portland “platinum” status for its bike-friendly ways, the only large city in America to be so named.

These honors are the second major award the city received in 2012 for its pro-pedaling proclivities. Bicycling magazine named Portland America’s most bike-friendly city earlier this year.

Keep on riding!
