This month we go back to our roots-- grass roots that is. Portland's flame of cycling activism burned out over the recession. But recently, out of the ashes comes new, exciting growth. Tori and Chris talk with Alex Reed of Bike Loud Portland, Lisa White of Bike-Walk-Vote and Boris Kaganovich of Better Block PDX. These passionate and motivated average-citizens are shaping the way your city streets look with an energy and enthusiasm not seen since we ripped out a highway and replaced it with a park.
