Why don’t more cities do what Portland is doing for its bicyclists?

    Portland is indeed considered the bicycle capital of the United States. It may very well be the high numbers of bicyclists there that caused the popular movement to use bikes instead of automobiles. Other cities may not promote bicycle transportation as much because of cost. There are bike lanes everywhere else, but with more bicyclists, cities may have to widen those lanes, or change other traffic components. The last reason I can imagine is simply distance: bicyclists in Los Angeles, for example, may not fare as well because most people travel from over 20 miles to get from their homes to their destinations.
