There's a new mural in town, and it's a biggie.
Todd Roll, the owner of Pedal Bike Tours in Old Town says they've just put the finishing touches on a four-story mural on the north side of his building at 133 SW 2nd Ave. Roll launched his business on Williams Avenue in north Portland back in November 2008. He's seen solid growth in his guided bike tours every year.
The location of the new mural is in the heart of a Portland tourist triangle — between Waterfront Park and Saturday Market, Stumptown Coffee, and Voodoo Donuts. Roll says he wanted visitors to, "Experience Portland's love of bikes and have yet another great photo opportunity." As for locals, Roll adds that, "we can revel in the pride of a 6% bicycle commuter rate, and always push the bar higher... or bigger."
I like it and cannot wait to see it for myself when I get back into town.
