Pedal Portland, a new book by Portlander Todd Roll, celebrates the city's passion for pedaling in an accessible, fun, and family-friendly way. It features 25 easy rides that explore the most interesting parts of the city, from north to northwest to northeast, southwest to southeast, and the surrounding areas like Beaverton and Vancouver. Each ride is accessible to anyone with a bike, including kids. The rides range from eight to twelve miles and many can be shortened by taking advantage of the city's bike-friendly public transportation. Each route features a scavenger hunt that highlights the quirky and interesting sites along the way and includes tips on where to eat, drink, and stop to appreciate the view.
Join Todd for the launch of his book today with a party (free) that starts at 5:30 located at 133 SW 2nd in downtown Portland.
