Bridge Pedal

Today I rode in the Providence Bridge Pedal, a big community bike ride in Portland. I heard an estimate of 18,000 people. I can believe it; it was more crowded this year compared to last year. There were bnottleneck this year where people had to get off and walk. I heard somebody joke that the traffic jam at the top of the Marquam reminded them of their commute.

To me, the best part of the Bridge Pedal is that they close the top decks of the two freeway bridge and open it to bikes. After the climb, it means a nice view. This year, I remembered to bring my camera and took a bunch of photos.
