Todd Roll doesn’t seem too upset that the City of Portland has told him the 45-foot tall mural on the side of his business, Pedal Bike Tours, has to come down.
The mural reads, “Welcome to America’s Bicycle Capital.” Tourists love to take pictures of it.
The city says Roll doesn’t have the right type of permit for something that could be seen as more billboard than mural.
According to Roll, some bicycle blogs are saying other cities are close to becoming more bike-friendly than Portland. He says if that happens his mural would be nothing more than “flag-waving,” and he’d have to take it down eventually.
