Portland is America’s #2 “Most Bikeable City,” according to a website that ranks America’s most walkable and bikeable cities.
Walk Score ranks the Rose City just behind Minneapolis and ahead of San Francisco, Boston and Madison. Seattle ranked seventh. The scores are based on bike infrastructure, including lanes and trails, hills, destinations and road connectivity, plus the number of bike commuters.
Remember, May is National Bike Month, so be sure to become one of those bike commuters and help Portland gain the #1 ranking next year.
