Bike commuters

I just wanted to share this tidbit from Willamette Week, a local weekly.

"According to the latest Census Bureau data, Portland has more bike commuters than any other US city, but that's just still 3.5 percent of Portland traffic."

Portland is very bike friendly and the weather isn't bad, although the cold damp of winter does discourage a lot of commuters, I'm sure.

I had a nice birthday weekend. Back to work this week all refreshed and ready to go. Made some New Farm Mac and Cheez for lunches this week. I love this recipe.

Living in Eugene a few years ago helped convert us into bike commuters. Back then, Corvallis had the highest percentage of commuters at 9% of their population. Has it gone down or was the census information divided by city size?

Happy belated birthday!
