    “We toured areas where freeways were proposed, or torn down in lovely Portland. About 17 riders attended the tour on a warm June day. We took a short ride down the freeway and bumpy ride through gravel in the train yard. What a fun learning adventure!”

    I’m sure Shawn will post his own report soon and if he doesn’t leave it in the comments, I’ll link to it here.
