Portland Oregon is not only my hometown but is one of the bike friendliest cities in the world. Two years ago, Portland started the Sunday Parkways program. Portland Sunday Parkways is about connecting neighborhoods and people: walkers, runners, bicyclists, seniors, adults, and children all enjoying streets filled with surprises, performers, physical activities and food – and traffic-free. The 6-8 mile routes connect Portland’s beautiful parks and offer a chance for participants to listen to music, try other activities, such as hula hooping, or just relax and enjoy the smiling faces. Many local artists take inspiration from this bike friendly city, here are some of my favorites. Click on the pictures above to visit their etsy shop.
