But really, attacking Portland’s pretension to be the most bike friendly city in the world is attacking a straw man. Too easy for you, BikeSnob! I offer, as evidence, no more than a single photo from a single well-known European city. When the bicycle is as commonplace and non-chalantly integrated into urban life as it is in this picture, American cycling advocates will truly have accomplished something. Even in Portland, they just have a long, long way to go yet.
