Check this story out. The city of Portland shutdown a 6-mile loop to automobiles on Sunday and it went over pretty well. Apparently they tied the bike and pedestrian holiday into a series of festive events along the auto-free loop. I’ve heard some talk of trying this on a couple of streets in Spokane. Some people have even mentioned trying to do it on the entire downtown network on a sunny Sunday afternoon to see how it goes over.
What do you think? Does Spokane have enough interest in bicycling to pull something like this off?
