Yesterday, Mayor Potter officially kicked off the 10th annual Bridge Pedal ride with a ceremony downtown. The press conference was held in front of the Portlandia sculpture across from the Portland Building. I wasn’t able to be there, but thanks to Roger Geller I’ve added a few photos of the festivities to the BikePortland photostream.

The coolest thing is that Ms. Portlandia is now officially bikey. She is adorned with a commemorative Bridge Pedal helmet, she finally got a bike to call her own, and you’ve got to love the special, 10 bridge birthday cake.

cyclists in Portland ORThe Oregonian is reporting a whopping 18,000 people have registered for the 1oth annual Bridge Pedal ride this year. Wow. That’s going to be an amazing day for bicycles in Portland.

I can’t make it this year because I’m expecting my 2nd child sometime that same week! Gotta stay close to the nest if you know what I mean.

If anyone would like to take pictures for the BikePortland.org photostream (which is nearing 500 images!), please get in touch.

Just got off the phone with Melissa Sanchez of the Oregonian. She’s working on an article and is looking for someone who has done every single Bridge Pedal event.

If you have done this or know someone who has, get in touch with Melissa ASAP via email or call (503) 221-8199.
