My son first showed me this proposal for a cycle-track in downtown Portland.
He is a daily bike commuter, riding a respectable distance to PSU, and these sorts of transportation improvements are especially important to those that are riding on a regular basis, through all types of weather and lighting conditions. Â It would be great if this could be accomplished.Â Portland has been making remarkable progress to promote bicycling and to make it safe for everyone.Â And Sam Adams has been a big part of that.

The other night, hometown indie rockers The Decemberists gave a national-TV shout out to Portland as a “big biking town” on the Colbert Report (watch the video above).
This morning, Portland Mayor Sam Adams went a step further, promising to remove one of three automobile lanes on a stretch of Southwest Broadway for a high-capacity “cycletrack” near Portland State University.
