To a large extent, bicyclists will determine their future in PDX by their current actions on the road.
an example: the collisions we hear about between motorists and bicyclists certainly emphasize the risks bicyclists face on PDX's roads. However, I routinely see cyclists out at night in dark or black clothing, wearing no reflective vests (or any reflective material for that matter) and only a single, small, red taillight beneath the seat. Judging by their bicycles and clothing, these are serious cyclists - yet they seem oblivious to how invisible they are.
These cyclists need to do a lot more personally to improve their safety if they hope to convince the public to do so with public $$.
