Ride Report
This ride was a lovely scenic tour of various SE Portland water features. We began at Reed College, pedalling over Reed Lake, and visited places like Westmoreland Park, Oaks Bottom, Johnson Creek Park, and Crystal Springs. The closure of the Springwater Trail foiled our guide’s original plans, but nevertheless we enjoyed a delightful ride through quiet neighborhoods and over tiny bridges, accompanied by a few sprinkles and even a rainbow! 15 intrepid cyclists turned out in spite of threatening clouds, and everyone learned something new about our fair wet city.Re
