Portland’s Bike Boulevards

For those who enjoyed Mia Birk’s lecture on January 26, here’s a story on Portland’s Bike Boulevards (similar to our bikeways) from the New Urban Network:

Portland has created more than 300 miles of bicycle facilities in the past 25 years. Among the most effective are “bicycle boulevards” or “neighborhood greenways.” A bicycle boulevard is a shared street with no specific bike lanes or paths. These streets have low motor vehicle volume and speed, and they possess enhanced landscaping (more street trees are planted, for example) and traffic-calming features.

Stephen Rees also provides a comprehensive summary of Mai’s lecture in Vancouver here.
