Bud Clark: In Memoriam
Earlier this year, with the death of former Mayor Bud Clark, Portland’s bicycling community and Providence Bridge Pedal lost a great friend. Much of Portland’s prominence as one of the best bicycling cities in the world can be traced back to the leadership of Bud Clark.
This photo of Bud was taken in 1996 for us to use to publicize the first Bridge Pedal.
One of Bud’s favorite quotes is by Portlander C.E.S. Wood: “Good citizens are the riches of a city.” With his passing, Portland has lost one of its most valuable treasures.
