From Portland Afoot
The Portland Mercury is a free weekly newspaper based in downtown Portland. It comes out on Thursday.
Because The Mercury aims to serve educated, urban 20-somethings and 30-somethings, the Mercury often covers low-car issues, especially about bicycling. Here's an archive of its latest bike-related blog posts.
As of March 2011, the Mercury's transportation reporter is Sarah Mirk.
The Mercury was founded in June 2000.
- Quarterfold Inc., the remains of a company that published the Chicago Reader and Washington City Paper until 2007, and
- Loaded-for-Bear Publishing Company, run by Stranger publisher Tim Keck and Mercury publisher Rob Crocker.
According to Verified Audit Circulation, The Mercury's weekly circulation was about 34,000 in winter 2010.
