Portland Bicycle News

Crossposted from [community profile] bicycles

Most American bike-riders know that Portland is pretty forward in the bike movement. Well, check this out! I took it from an announcement* that was just released to employees of the City of Portland this morning:

Don’t forget that tomorrow is the first FURLOUGH FRIDAY for the City, so don’t come to work. In case you missed Wednesday’s Council meeting, an emergency ordinance was passed to create furlough days for all employees on the first and last Friday of each month. The salary savings will be used to fund the new Portland Bicycle Streetcar Project, which makes specialized streetcars available for bicyclists who don’t want to get wet when it rains. Each streetcar is equipped with treadmills so the bicyclists can ride their bikes while riding the streetcar. A Portland Loo will be installed in each car. The Portland Bicycle Streetcar Project is part of City Council’s desire to get 150% of all citizens to ride bicycles by next Thursday.

* In the Daily News, the production of a waggish friend of mine.

I think it would be cool to have treadmills that actually make the streetcar go!

That was my pal Todd writing that. He's a hoot.
