Before and after
It wasn't always this way!
In 1993 Mia Birk was the bicycle coordinator for the city of Portland. Her first bike ride was a white knuckled, stress ride with motorists hovering behind, waiting to gun it to pass her! "Portland at the time had but a few dozen miles of disconnected bike lanes, green “bike route” signs on a few neighborhood streets, dead-end paths, highway shoulders and way-too-narrow bridge sidewalks."
With your help, Burlington can be Portland!
