Bicycle Innovators in Portland Oregon

An exhibition of bicycles handmade in Oregon introduced at the Portland Airport. Video features interviews with bicycle designers who are sustainability innovators.  Portland has a varied bicycle network that connects all parts of the city. This network has proven successful in dramatically increasing bicycle use. Portland also has a strong bicycle culture and advocacy organizations. It is no. 2 in the top 11 bike friendly cities. You'll have to bike to Amsterdam, to be in the no. 1 spot, for now anyway. 

For more sustainability thought leaders, please visit the Portland Sustainability Leadership channel on YouTube.
