The above video from the office of Portland Mayor Sam Adams was posted online a couple of years ago. But it’s so nicely done, featuring a couple of bold ideas on separating bikes and cars on Portland streets. I figured it would be fun to post now that we’re T-minus three days from the next CicLAvia.
The city of Los Angeles has a good bike blog through its Department of Transportation explaining how it’s trying to improve bike infrastructure in the city — the lead item today explains that 20 miles of L.A. streets were marked with sharrows to encourage cyclists and vehicles to share the roadway.
Of course, there are 88 cities in Los Angeles County and many — like L.A. — are pursuing serious cycling upgrades. It will be interesting to see how many of these ideas take hold here.
