You should check out the Portland bike map...It's awesome.
I would go up to the Hawthorne bridge then over to Ladd's Addition. From there you can connect to either Clinton or Lincoln. They both have lights to help you cross 39th. Then I would cruise down the bike route (41st? 42nd?). That's a better way to cross Powell than 52nd by a long shot. I ride that everyday. Crossing Holgate is your next problem but you can just weave your way home from there.
