Starting Gate for Providence Bridge Pedal Ride
Sunday, I participated in the 2007 Providence Bridge Pedal Ride. It's practically the only time they shut down the bridges in Portland in lieu of bikes. Riders could choose to ride across 6, 8 or 10 bridges (14, 24, or 36 miles). I rode the six bridge ride because I did not know what I was in store for...not sure I could do it, etc. After all, it is hilly in Portland!
Well I made it to the Finish line!
This is a series of six pics devoted to the Bridge Pedal ride. Myself and 20,000 Portland friends participated. It got quite crowded at some points, but in general, it was a lot of fun. Our participation helped buy defibrilators. Providence Heart and Vascular Institute will buy automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and donate them to selected gathering places in the community, such as stores, schools and libraries. An AED is a portable device used to restore normal heart rhythm to persons in cardiac arrest.
