Portland Sees Significant Drop in Bicycle Ridership Due to Homeless Camps and Aggressive Drivers

Data from the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) shows a significant drop in the number of bicycle riders in Portland in 2022, which had the lowest number of cyclists since at least 2006.

The numbers have been declining since before the pandemic, and looking at information from the city’s Bicycle Counts 2022 report, KATU gathered several factors for why people have stopped commuting by bike.

Some of the top concerns we heard are over homeless camps and tents on bike paths and aggressive drivers on the roads.

“I definitely see homeless on bike paths and that is tough to drive around them,” said cyclist Tiffany Quarles. “It forces you onto the road and off bike paths, and also aggressive drivers, who don’t seem to want bikers on the road.”
