An example of sharrows in Portland

When I spoke last week to Jeff Stephens, executive director of, he said bikers should definitely be on hand at the Statehouse Monday, around 8 a.m., for a big announcement from city officials and cycling advocates.

It will be big news, he said. [Event info]

Stephens, Mayor Michael Coleman and others are riding from the South Campus Gateway to Capital Square to announce a great new share-the-road campaign that will put sharrows on a 6.5-mile corridor along Morse Road and North High Street. They'll arrive around 8 a.m., where booths will be set up to raise awareness about National Bike Month.
