Abstract:

This study examined the accessibility of bicycle travel in a Portland, Oregon neighborhood that is not known to be particularly accessible for cyclists. The author takes into account the availability of bicycle infrastructure and bicycle friendly streets, the locations and existence of various destinations, and comes up with “bikeability” scores for a number of Portland, Oregon neighborhoods. His study and scoring system confirms that the particular neighborhood in East Portland that was the main object of study is indeed not very bikeable. Recommendations are provided to increase the accessibility of this neighborhood for cyclists.
