My parents were always great about going to new places when I was growing up. This is the second trip we’ve gone exploring the Pacific Northwest together. Lost Lake wasn’t as clear with the smoke and haze, but it was still quite a sight and the waters were amazingly clear.
Jake Hopkins joined me on the expedition, and we enjoyed a casual ride over seven Portland bridges. I couldn’t have asked for better weather and better company.
Many thanks to the organizers and volunteers for hosting the event. It’s a great joy to ride on the bridges and freeways without cars and a proud citizen of a city that promotes biking!
A group of Vernier employees and family rode around the Portland Waterfront for a summer wellness challenge bonus activity. It was a beautiful day and just the right temperature to enjoy the waterfront.
I enjoyed lunch at Nicholas’ restaurant with Jake and Tom afterwards, then challenged myself by riding home from the Oregon Zoo. It’s been the longest ride I’ve done in a long while and everyone had a good time.
