Where: 1 SE Madison St. (on the Eastbank Esplanade by the Firehouse and Hawthorne Bridge)
What if…Portland built all the freeways it planned? This ride will follow the routes of several highways that never made it off the drawing board, such as the fabled Mt. Hood Freeway, some that did but were later removed, and also as a reference some freeways that currently exist. Approx 12 miles of riding through moderate traffic.
NOTE: This ride is “Part 2″ to the ones led in 2008, as this time we’re staying on the eastside so we can cover areas missed on previous rides.
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 tact 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
