Like Night and Day MUPpet Ride

Posted by on June 18th, 2007 at 3:38 am

@ SW Salmon & Naito Parkway (Salmon Springs Fountain in Tom McCall Waterfront Park)

Come ride possibly the best and the worst Multi-User Paths (MUP) in Portland! We’ll leave from the Salmon Fountain in Waterfront Park and to the Eastbank Esplanade. We’ll continue down the beautiful Springwater-on-the-Willamette trail to Sellwood, where we’ll embark on the most frightening commuter route imaginable – the Willamette Greenway Trail! We’ll start off right by crossing the Sellwood Bridge, and hit the bottom end of the trail proper, where we’ll negotiate the most anti-bicycle multi-use path in Portland! The theme is MUPpets, so bring Kermit, Elmo or whoever along! It was pointed out that it’s better to start with the bad and end with the good…. So, we’re going to start with the horrendous westside Willamette Greenway Trail and end with the Springwater Corridor. We’re starting from Salmon Fountain, but the end will be at the top of the Eastbank Esplanade, so those going to the Twin Spin can continue on to NE Shaver.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with class and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
