Yesterday was a delightful 82 degree here in the Rose City. A perfect day to enjoy a ride on the wild side of the Peninsula along a series of trails, low traffic streets, and bike lanes combining three Portland by Cycle rides — Waterfront Loop trail #8, North Portland Trail # 2 and the Sauvie Island Ride #5 destination Kelley Point Park. Click on each ride and a printable map and directions will appear.
We started our ride on one of Portland’s premier trails, The Waterfront Loop #8, which offers one view after another of the Willamette River and the surrounding greenspaces. Mostly on macadam paths, with just a few short sections on streets, this is a delightful and relaxing ride. Just one block from the Fulton House Bed & Breakfast, you can link up with this loop to begin your biking trek.
Next Heading north along the Willamette River, we link up with the Portland by cycle Ride #5 at Naito Parkway and proceed to Wallace Park on NW 25th & Raleigh. After a few turns right, left, right and left again, we approach the St. Helens Road bike lane and follow highway 30 towards the St. Johns Bridge/Sauvie Island.
Once across the St. Johns Bridge, link up with the North Portland Trails # 2 and follow the directions to Kelley Point Park. At Kelley Point Park, you will see the impressive confluence of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers.
All in all, a fantastic day biking and enjoying the scenery! And over +25 miles of biking!
