Awesome map showing change in % of bike commuters. That big red dot in Oregon? That's #SalemOR h/t @mapbox governing.com/gov-data/bicyc…The change is very close to the margin of error, but still...even if we appeal to style and the culture of bicycling in Salem, in raw numbers it is difficult to conclude that things are getting better. If the City wants to improve bicycling in Salem, it needs to do more. (See note on the walking map here.)

Write Citycouncil@cityofsalem.net and let Councilors know that Salem is falling behind!
The League of American Bicyclists announced today the fall round of Bicycle Friendly Communities. Salem maintained the bronze - but unlike other communities in Oregon, it failed to upgrade.
