During September's Bike Commute Challenge we'll have an occasional series on bike commuters in Salem!
bike lockers installed recently! He has a five mile ride to and from the park-and-ride lot, and then goes in to his job in Wilsonville by motorpool or shuttle. He says he'll commute year-round this way.
He looked like a pretty confident rider, but many of the park-and-ride lots are located on intersections of very busy arterial roads, and they are not designed to attract "interested and concerned" or new riders. In order to become meaningfully attractive connections for the "last mile" leg of a trip, the park-and-ride lots as well as the roads adjacent to them will need improvements for people who bike or are interested in bicycling.
