The Rights, Rules & Rides of Oregon
September 2015 - March 2016
John E. Jaqua Law Library
William W. Knight Law Center (1515 Agate Street), 2nd floor
From Portland’s bike artisans to its cycling mayors like Bud Clark and Sam Adams, Oregon boasts a vibrant bike culture. Oregon bicyclists have actively lobbied against auto-centric transportation laws since the 1970s. In 1971, the Oregon legislature passed the Oregon Bicycle Bill (ORS 366.514), but the statute was not fully enforced until the Oregon Transportation Alliance brought suit against Portland in 1995.
This exhibit focuses on Oregon’s bike culture and the bicycle laws and policies that allow it to thrive.
