Short bicycle cam video through the Beaverton neighborhood where Villa Sport is located, near Nike HQ. Traffic has increased since Villa Sport opened in 2014. Left turns onto nearby Jenkins can be a real bear by bike. There are no painted crosswalks, so crossing on foot to catch the bus is scary & hard. There is also on-street car parking on the north side which obstructs visibility; you can see the parked cars at 1:48 minutes in.
Villa Sport traffic came up at a recent city council meeting, when the development of another huge fitness center was appealed. Approval was based on old 2007 traffic data, a lawyer said, & today’s numbers are much higher. But one of the city councilors argued that he lives near Villa Sport, & that, “the impact is nowhere near what the numbers say they are. It’s much lower.”
