Default Sellwood to the South Park Blocks.....

Hey I'm relatively new to Portland moved here from california but we just moved from Beaverton to Sellwood. So I'd like to get some ideas on some good routes.

First: does anyone know of the fastest route from Sellwood to the Southpark blocks. basically the corner of Park and Main downtown.

Second: the safest route from sellwood to the corner of Park and Main.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Brian.

Default What I'd do

Springwater Trail to Hawthorne Bridge. Then straight up Main to Park. Depending on construction and time of day, you may opt for a slightly different route once you get into downtown.

Bryan,

You might start with www.bycycle.org. That will lay out a pretty detailed route.

Once you ride it, if you have questions about specific tweaks, jump back in here and ask.

If you haven't already done so, you might also want to check out the Portland Department of Transportation Bicycle page, it's a great compendium of local resources, maps, etc..

Welcome to the area, and hope this helps.
