Bike Sharing: Does it work? Is it as simple as it seems, or too good to be true?

Bike Sharing! Since December is the month of giving and receiving, we're looking at what it takes have a city with bike sharing facilities. Bike sharing systems allow paying members to pick up a bike from one station and return it to another close to their destination. Essentially, cycling without having to own a bike. We'll be joined by Jocelyn Gaudi, a main player in NYC's new system, Mitch Vars from Nice Ride of Minneaplois, and Ricky Rios of Caribbean Green Bikes in Puerto Rico to talk about different systems, different cities, the triumphs and pitfalls of the system and if bike sharing has a real future in Portland.

Washington County: How to Make Cycling Work in the Suburbs and Beyond

Biking with Kids

In 2007, I was privileged to bicycle 4500 miles with 11-yr-old Tala, her two-yr-old twin sisters, and their mother. We rode from Corvallis, OR, to Washington, DC, by way of San Bernadino, New Orleans, and St. Louis for peace and sustainability. It was wonderful fun.

Prior to that I raised my own daughter with a kid stoker kit on a Burley tandem. Biking with kids is ideal.

Go, Granny!!!

Human Electric Hybrid Bikes

I'm a bike commuter and I ride an Optibike, an electric assist bicycle. My bike is only one of two in Oregon but it is only one of many types being used here in Portland . In fact, Portland has its own Ebike industry and the number of E bikes stores is expanding, including Bike Gallery. I think this technology will expand the bike community and should be addressed by the KBOO Bike Show. Take a look at the Optibike web site and if you'd like to see one, contact me.

April show
