This is a series of six pics devoted to the Bridge Pedal ride. Myself and 20,000 Portland friends participated on Sunday, August 12, 2007.
Hawthorne Bridge was the first bridge I crossed. I kept my ears and eyes open, which is good to do in everyday life, right? I could hear excitement through the crowd. I could hear parents encouraging or instructing their kids on moving through the sea of bikes. And I could see that although it was hard to move around, everyone was in this together. And we will all get through it okay.Note:
The trend this year were tandem bikes, or bikes with trailers. Both used to a hold growing family. I saw every kind of bike
imaginable. From old one speed bikes with those wire baskets in the
front and fenders on the back, to the new folding bikes. (Bike Friday
had a drawing...The Eugene, OR based company held a drawing to give one
away. Check out their web site. Their bikes look quite interesting.
Folding bikes have come a long way.)
