Bicycle Law - Oregon
Founded in 2000 by Olympian, national champion and former professional racer Bob Mionske, Bicycle Law provides legal resources for cyclists. Whether it is bicycle safety, what to do after a crash, or how to protect your rights, Bicycle Law has the resources cyclists need.
Oregon. The highest percentage of bicycle commuters in the country. Old logging roads leading to days-long adventures. High desert and coastal mountains providing immensely varied terrain. Portland. A commitment to active transportation that includes the first ever bridge built solely for cyclists, pedestrians, and transit. Oregon provides great promise to cyclists. The promise is a work in progress, though. Conflict persists on the road. Drivers, either distracted, rushing, or both, strike cyclists all too often.
If you have a legal issue – an Oregon bicycle crash, road use question, or advocacy issue, contact us at 866-VELOLAW (866-835-6529) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Oregon-based resource is Bicycle Law founder Bob Mionske’s own firm, The Law Offices of Bob Mionske.
Bicycle Law, founded in 2000 by Olympian, national champion, and former professional racer Bob Mionske, devotes itself to fighting for cyclists’ rights in the Portland area, Oregon, and beyond.
