Portland Bridge Pedal - Part 1

Chico and the boys did the Providence Portland Bridge Pedal on Sunday. They've been planning it for several months now. I didn't go along so Chico took the camera and took several photos, which I haven't downloaded yet.

There were 3 different photo stations on the route and Chico convinced the boys to stop for one of them. This was taken from the Fremont Bridge, which I believe is the tallest bridge in Portland. They handed them a ticket, took their photo and you could log onto the Providence website and get your free digital photo.

Here it is...

Isn't that cool?

Chico and the boys did the 14 mile, 6 Bridge Family Ride. This was the shortest ride. Chico said they would have done the 24 mile 8 bridge ride, but at that point you have to pay for the kids and since this was their first time, he thought he'd see how it went first.

Here are the bridges they rode over (in order):

Ross Island

I was trying to get a copy of the route map, but I'm not having much luck. I'll try for post #2. Alright, that's all for now. I'll show you Chico's photos (taken while riding) in the next post. Toodles!

Is that a tag-along bike for Jaxon? We have one for Keenan which is the greatest. He hated the burley trailer. . . Looks like they had a fun ride.
