Bridge Pedal 2009

One day a year Portland lets the bicycles take over the bridges in town, including those that are part of the interstate system.  It’s called the Bridge Pedal, and thousands of riders of all ages get up early on a Sunday morning and hit the roads.  I did the 8-bridge option, which covered about 24 miles and took about 2.5 hours at a fairly leisurely but steady pace.

Highlights were the views from the Marquam bridge, the Fremont Bridge (above), and the St John’s bridge (below).  Check out bikeportland.org for more coverage of the event.
