Only time will tell if Portland’s plan to spend $613 million over 20 years on new bike paths and other bicycling infrastructure needs will change the city’s ranking on Bicycling magazine’s list of America’s top 50 bike-friendly cities.
For the 2010 list, Portland ranks No. 2, behind Minneapolis. Rounding out the top five cites are Boulder, Colo.; Seattle; and Eugene. Salem ranked No. 19.
