Had a great ride out to St. Johns with the illustrious Carye Bye. She led us out to the peninsula via a circuitous route that included Willamette Blvd. and the neighborhood streets of University Park. Once we pedaled through Main Street parade-style, we stopped to check out the beautiful (yet not bike-friendly) St. Johns Bridge.
We all locked up in front of Patti’s Homeplate Diner and walked around to check out the various art installations. We made stops at Tulip’s Bakery, Weir’s Cyclery, and Blue Moon camera shop. I had to peel off a bit prematurely but the remaining crew had a bite at Patti’s before heading home.
It was a great day to pedal a bike and it was great for me to explore St. Johns a bit more. For a few more photos of the ride, click here.
Thanks to Carye for leading and to Shawn for bringing the strawberry-banana smoothie!
