BikePortland.org: To Inform and Inspire
...Plus a Whole Lot of Fun...and Science...and You Didn't Think Those Two Could go Together, Did You?
BikePortland is Your Go-to Source for Human Powered News in the Rose City and BeyondAlthough, and as we're sure you've already guessed, BikePortland.org focuses its news and events coverage on Portland, Oregon, it also follows bicycle and progressive transportation happenings on Capitol Hill and throughout the rest of the country. The site is also about to begin running a regular ''Bike Science'' column, written by an experienced engineer and bicycle component manufacturer, that ''will investigate and demystify the science behind bikes, components, and accessories.''
Even for its geographical bias, BikePortland news coverage is truly, ahem, fair and balanced, and readers engage in regular (and lengthy) discussions on developing issues, particularly surrounding bicycle infrastructure and the re-envisioning of traffic as bicycling becomes more popular. And, since Portland strives constantly to be at the forefront of ''progressive urbanism...and alternative transportation'' (see our plug of ourselves in the ''In The News'' section to the top left), the reportage and discussions at BikePortland are likely going to be similar to the discussions of those same issues in other American cities in the months and years to come. So, do yourself a favor and get in on the ground floor. (And find yourself some bike fun while you're at it.)
Better World Club is proud to partner with BikePortland.org in its mission to realize a fun, safe, inspired, and bicycle friendly transportation future.
