Portland Car-Free Happy Hour
This is a photo I snapped last fall on National Park(ing) Day -nationwide event- parking spots are turned into mini parks and other things for the day. The one above was also part of that big Portland bike parking project. Anyway, last month my four year anniversary of not owning a car! And I love it.
What's your vision of sustainable transportation and how to make it happen for Portland and the greater world? How do you get around in Portland in and in the greater world? What are you working on?
