The first electronic bike counter in the U.S. will be unveiled this morning at 10:00 a.m. on the Hawthorne Bridge in Portland. The bike counter, donated by Cycle Oregon, will be placed on the west end of Hawthorne bridge and will visibly show the number of people on bikes who ride past it. Although bike counters have been utilized in many cities abroad, this is a “first-of-its-kind” installation in the United States!
Representatives from the City of Portland and Multnomah county will officially turn on the counter this morning, August 8. The event begins at 10 am and is schedule to last approximately half an hour.
