101,000 Oregonians call Gresham home and now they have a fantastic new bike map to help them get around their burgeoning burg.
While Metro's latest "Bike There" map covers the entire Portland-Vancouver region, this Gresham-centric map really hones in on all of the bikeable paths, parks, lanes, and neighborhood streets.
As I scanned the new map I saw some very exciting developments:
- This winter the Gresham-Fairview trail extension will connect the Springwater Corridor trail to the MAX Blue Line and north to NE Halsey and 201st.
- A big chunk of the 40-mile loop from the Sandy River Delta to the Marine Drive Trail will be completed in 2012 (and some of the Sandy River Delta trail is already open!)
- Gresham has a lot of bike facilities, most of which are bike lanes on larger arterials.
