PORTLAND, Ore. – I love collaborating with Clarence Eckerson, Jr. You may remember our Sasquatch video. We have a ton of fun talking shop and rollin’ tape. In this video are cool bike wheels, Clarence, Greg Raisman, Elly Blue, and bikey SE people (plus a brief shot of the Disco Trike rollin’ slow).
Here’s more stuff from Streetfilms.org
The first time you visit Portland, Oregon, the gaggles of cyclists streaming over the Hawthorne Bridge during rush hour is a sight you will never forget. It’s something other cities need to see and be inspired by.
On a recent vacation there, I couldn’t resist cranking out a Streetfilms shortie, so I naturally hooked up with Crank My Chain’s Dan Kaufman to capture the essence of the PM rush and talk to cyclists about what it feels like to be a part of the mass of cyclist humanity in Southeast Portland, Hawthorne corridor. As Greg Raisman from Portland’s Bureau of Transportation pointed out: 20% of all traffic on the Hawthorne Bridge is bikes. And, Portland’s number of cyclists has risen 600% in the last fifteen years and shows no sign of letting up.
