This challenging city ride takes you to the top of three of Portland’s most scenic parks: Mount Tabor, Joseph Wood Hill Park at Rocky Butte, and Council Crest Park. From the summits of these three parks, you have spectacular views of the Portland metropolitan area. This route takes you past century-old homes in some of the Portland’s historic neighborhoods. You’ll also have the opportunity to ride across two of Portland’s historic bridges—the Broadway and Hawthorne—which both offer scenic views of the Willamette River and downtown Portland. Additional highlights on this ride include a tour of downtown Portland and the urban greenery of Washington Park. Optional side trips include Waterfront Park, Oregon Zoo, World Forestry Center, Vietnam Memorial, Hoyt Arboretum, Portland Rose Gardens, and the Hawthorne District.
