Yesterday, Mayor Potter officially kicked off the 10th annual Bridge Pedal ride with a ceremony downtown. The press conference was held in front of the Portlandia sculpture across from the Portland Building. I wasn’t able to be there, but thanks to Roger Geller I’ve added a few photos of the festivities to the BikePortland photostream.

The coolest thing is that Ms. Portlandia is now officially bikey. She is adorned with a commemorative Bridge Pedal helmet, she finally got a bike to call her own, and you’ve got to love the special, 10 bridge birthday cake.
