What makes Portland, Oregon such a great bikeable community

Portland is a cycling paradise. There are bike lanes, bikeways on bridges, bike trails, bike boulevards, and many people who bike to work, to school, and for many of their local trips. Street Films has posted Portland: Celebrating America’s Most Livable City, a 30-minute film about what makes Portland a bikeable community. There are segments on Safe Routes to School, bicycle-activated traffic signals, bike trails, bicycle boulevards, and much more. It's well worth watching to see what Fairfax could be like in the future. (StreetFilms is a project of the New York City Street Renaissance (NYCSR), a collection of non-profits geared towards re-imagining the city's public spaces and making our streets safer for pedestrians, bicycles and non-vehicular modes of transportation.)
