After a 1-year decline, bicycle traffic in Portland is growing again.
A Portland Bureau of Transportation count released last week shows an 8 percent jump in bicycle trips overall.
The bike counts were conducted at more than 150 locations around Portland by trained volunteers and automatic hoses on bike routes.
A recent Census Bureau survey shows Portland is still No. 1 in bicycle commuting among the 30 largest cities in the country. In that survey, 6.8 percent say they prefer to bicycle to work in Portland.
