After the success of this, and similar events, Portland is ready to invest! New paint, new crosswalks and more are coming!

Recently a large yearly concert offered 200 bike parking spaces and was filled. Tomorrow, August 7, the local Street of Dreams is getting in on the fun. The Bicycle Transportation Alliance announced that there will be bike tours, bike gifts, bike-powered refreshments, a biking coach, and of course a VIP bike corral.

Want to be happier? Commute by bike! June 02 2014, 0 Comments
Portland State University (the perfect place to study bike commuting!)has a recent transportation study that shows people who commute by bike have a happier commute than any other mode. Car centered cities, suburban living and solo commuting in cars seems to have lowered our communal joy quotient. Researcher, Nohad A. Toulan states, "Commuting to work by active modes increases commute well-being, even when controlling for distance, income, and other factors."
That's central to our mission at Wind-Blox...join us to get away from your dull commute and participate in fun healthy transport and enjoy the ride without wind noise!
