BikeLoudPDX is a new Portland-focused cycling advocacy group. Our goal is to empower Portlanders to create safer streets via grassroots advocacy campaigns.
- Protected bikeways on commercial corridors prioritizing the most dangerous and cost effective sections that have local support (Barbur, Broadway-Sandy, Belmont-Burnside).
- Complete our greenway system ASAP including a High End East Green Loop. All decisions should be made in favor of active transportation including micro park rest-stops and motor vehicle diversion every quarter mile. “Park Ribbon Promenades” should be created through park-poor neighborhoods and near major roadways. This would be a cultural asset for the entire city.
- Transfer auto-focused infrastructure money to neighborhood greenways and bike lanes citywide.
- Pick an urban center and make it as bike- and pedestrian-friendly as possible. Our first choice would be the Hollywood Town Center as it lies within the heart of the central eastside and includes the NE Sandy high crash corridor.
