Default Sherwood to Blues Festival (Waterfront Park)?

What's a good bike route from Sherwood to Waterfront Park? I hear they have bike parking at the Blues Festival, so I thought I might give it a try.

Thanks

Well, the most direct route would be the one that I usually take heading out that direction, and that's just good ol' 99W. Just head north(east) on 99W from Sherwood and take a slight right onto Naito Parkway about 14 miles down the road. From there, it's all downhill to the waterfront. Naito is much less fun heading southbound, and I would recommend instead taking 1st to Hooker. When that meets up with Barbur, you can use the pedestrian signal to make a left turn and head back to Sherwood.

Now, I don't know your riding style, so this might be a bit too much for your tastes, as you're near fast traffic pretty much the entire way with a bike lane that's generally there, but sometimes just disappears. If you're looking for a quieter route, I really can't help you there.

Best of luck!
