Worst Day Ride - Explore the New Routes
The Urban Route - 19 miles
The event hub - Neighborhood bike-ways
Head north from the Lucky Lab to explore the new Blumenauer Bridge and the bike-ways around it. Ride past the Rose Garden then up the Main north/south Williams St bike-way to Mississippi Street.
Cross over I-5 and then up and over again on the curly-cue Going St Overpass.
Head east to wind your way through the storybook Alameda Ridge neighborhood. Continue through the funky Davis St neighborhood on your way back to the after-party at the Lucky Lab.
The Challenge Course - 36 miles
Cross the west hills twice!
It's a classic climb via Cornel / Thompson! Then a cool descent into the west slope.
Head north through the farms at the edge of the urban growth boundary. Start climbing again as you follow Old Germantown Road all the way up to Skyline Blvd. Catchy your breath at the top before heading down the other side to the majestic St John's Bridge. Cruise down Willamette Blvd, past the University of Portland until you reconnect with the Urban Route and cruise along the Alameda Ridge.
The Community Cycling Center loves Portland and bikes. So they put the two loves together, creating a non-profit organization on a mission to broaden access to bicycling and its benefits.
They offer community programs that get more of our neighbors feeling the freedom of two wheels. They teach kids and adults how to ride safe, be their own bike mechanics, and get more confident behind the handlebars. And with a full-service bike shop selling new and used bikes, parts, and repairs, the wheels of this idea keep on turning.
The Harvest Century is a ride with a mission. Proceeds raised benefit Community Vision to support their work with people who have disabilities.
Community Vision provides services, education, and advocacy to ensure that people with disabilities direct their own lives. They work with the community to foster inclusion, enhance accessibility, and achieve systems change.
