Re: “How Important are Bike-able Neighborhoods for Homebuyers?

I commute extensively and find it not nearly as harrowing as you propose. Of course, caution is always important. Downtown has never bothered me. For several years, I lived in NE Bend and commuted on Butler Market, Newport and 14th. Now, I live in midtown. My wife and I selected our current place specifically to be walkable and bikeable. I can ride from my home to Century Drive in 20 minutes or to Whole Foods in about the same time. That's only a few minutes longer than it would take to drive. During Bend's traffic peaks, I pass block-long lines of idling cars. The biggest obstacle to East-West travel is the obsolete underpass on Franklin Avenue. If we could improve that one passage, bike commuting would be smooth, efficient and safe for hundreds of bike commuters. Sure, I would love protected bike lanes everywhere, but I won't wait for the future to reach Bend. For now, I see hundreds of other commuters making the best of what exists today.
