What about that Portland weather?! Lately our fair city has been giving us a teaser of what’s to come over the summer and boy did it look, feel, and taste good! If there’s anything that we Portlandians, appreciate, it’s the sun. Doesn’t matter if it’s hot or cold, if there is sun we have on a tank top, shorts and sunglasses. Fortunately, these last couple of days were in the 80’s, and even though the weather decided not to stay the week, we’re pretty sure it’ll be back to visit soon. So in celebration of our string of sunny days (yes, 2 days of sun in Portland terms can count as a string) Portland Pedal Power would like to share with you 5 of our top Portland rides / destinations to help you kick off the next string of sunny days.
One of Portland’s fastest growing and most diverse neighborhoods, Mississippi has become a popular location for artists, foodies, beer gurus and the hip of youth of Portland as a whole! Every stop along Mississippi Ave is bike friendly and equipped well equipped with bike parking and outdoor seating. You can stop by Prost and enjoy a German beer on their back patio which, I might ad, is food cart food friendly. Maybe ride down the street and grab some ice cream at Ruby Jewel. Maybe you’ll be there on a Mississippi event day like the Cirque du Cycling. There is always something going on up on Mississippi Ave. All you have to do is show up!
