Washington DC Does Bikes - Why not Salem?

While we were getting snowed on, Oregon Bicycle Racing Association Executive Director Kenji Sugahara was in Washington, DC, at the National Bike Summit and enjoying the cherry blossoms and sun.

Reading BikePortland's coverage, you couldn't help notice the bike share and buffered bike lanes.

So here's a question: If a city as difficult and all-too-often dysfunctional as Washington, DC, can manage all this, what's keeping Salem back?
