International Walk and Bike to School Day: Portland
Did we celebrate that holiday in New York City? I was on a plane all day so, if we did, I missed it. At any rate, Walk and Bike to School Day was clearly a big deal in Portland. The Mayor, the transportation commissioner and lots of other local bigs showed up to pay tribute.
BikePortland has a nice photo gallery.
And for a little bit of historical context on Portland, check out Eckerson's Street Film: The Defeat of the Mt. Hood Freeway.
