BTA

Bicycle Transportation Alliance

The BTA creates healthy, sustainable communities by making bicycling safer, more convenient and more accessible.

Portland is one of the leaders in creating a bicycle friendly city. Recently a law was passed stating bicyclists do not have to follow the same laws automobiles do. The main change made to assist bicyclists was not forcing people on bicycles to stop at stop signs. Because stopping is inefficient and almost always unnecessary for a biker, completely stopping is no longer necessary. Along with this example, many other laws have been lifted and new laws have been instated in order to aid bicyclists in Portland.
