Link: Portland is best biking city, and that’s pathetic!

The city has invested only 1 percent of its entire transportation budget, about $2.7 million total, toward building bikeways over the last seven years. Additionally, the number of bike lanes built in the city has almost flat-lined during that period. From 1995 to 2000, the city launched into bike improvements with gusto, doubling the number of Portland bikeway miles from 114 miles to 222 miles. But from 2001 to 2008, the city has added only 38 miles while the biking population has more than doubled.
