The art of the possible — Portland, Oregon, shows what Tallahassee could do

Portland, Oregon, has a good head start on other cities when it comes to managing its grid of streets and roads for the use of bicycle commuters.

But Portland has not done the impossible — our town, Tallahassee, Florida, could do the same, and the Committee for a Bikeable Community is committed to helping Tallahassee and Leon County take the right steps in this direction.

Here’s a video that gives a good look at what Portland has accomplished.

We could do this, and we can take advantage of the two decades of development, successes and errors that Portland has gone through.

Think of this video, and what it demonstrates, as a shortcut to Tallahassee’s Bikeable future.
