The City of Portland adopted its first Bicycle Master Plan in 1996 and updated the plan in 1998. In 2006, the Portland Bureau of Transportation undertook a major effort to update the Bicycle Master Plan. As part of that process a report documenting past developments and the current status of bicycling in the city was written to serve as a starting point for the new master plan. Most of the Existing Conditions Report was completed in 2007, with some chapters revised or updated in 2009. This Executive Summary is excerpted from the completed report.
