Oregon cyclists' progress

Courtesy of the Bicycle Transportation Alliance, comes this round-up of one piece--the cycling piece--of the work that got done in Salem this legislative session:

The Share the Road License Plate bill.

The Vulnerable Roadway Users bill.

The Safe Passing Distance on Rural Roads provision.

Changes to a brake standard for bikes that allows a front-brake only.

Funding for Safe Routes to Schools programs in Oregon.

See? Elections matter.

p.s. Hey, Davis, CA: That sound you hear behind you is us!

(Cool-looking license image via Bicycle Colorado. Why don't we have mock-ups of the forthcoming Oregon plates?)
