B IS FOR BICYCLE
Broadway Bridge (West side – overlooking Union Station)
By bicycle we go finding adventure in the letter B. Here is how it works: The bikefun is up to you: bring a ride idea or destination that is A) in Central Portland (not in the boonies) B) All Ages (sorry no bars), C) Free & D) Starts with the letter B. Such as… Blowing bubbles by BigPink or Bicycling Belmont bellowing “Bikes are D’Bomb” to bystanders.
