Kid holding up four fingersPortland - Are We Really # 4?

A panel discussion including:

Roger Geller, Bicycle Coordinator, City of Portland

Jessica Roberts, Principal and Programs Manager, ALTA Planning

Rob Sadowsky, Executive Director, Bicycle Transportation Alliance

Moderated by Michael Anderson, News Editor,

Portland, it has been reported, is no longer at the top of Bicycling Magazine's rankings for bike-friendly cities.  Didn't even make podium.  This after many years of being the # 1 pick and after being the first large city to achieve the Platinum-level ranking for Bicycle Friendly Communities by the League of American Bicyclists.

Is it true? Is Portland behind New York, Chicago and Minneapolis? And if yes, how should we respond? Spend an hour with several of the Rose City's deep thinkers on bicycling pondering these questions - and don't forget to bring your lunch.
