Providence Bridge Pedal
Join your friends and neighbors for the one opportunity each year to bike or walk on Portland’s car-free streets and bridges, including the upper decks of both the Marquam and Fremont bridges.
The number of bridges involved in the ride will be limited this year as a portion of the Springwater Corridor will be closed, and the City of Portland’s restrictions on special events remain in place.
But the heart of the Providence Bridge Pedal remains intact. All cyclists and walkers will cross the upper decks of both the Marquam and Fremont bridges, with the exception of Kids Pedal participants.
- Marquam Express – Enjoy sunrise and a light breakfast on top of the Marquam Bridge with stunning views of downtown Portland, the Willamette River and the Cascades. Then bike on I-405 to the Fremont Bridge and onto the rest of the Providence Bridge Pedal route.
- Main Ride – This new configuration crosses six downtown bridges with a thrilling ride on I-405 from the Marquam to the Fremont Bridge. Riders may do multiple loops.
- Kids Pedal – Even the youngest cyclists can enjoy being part of Providence Bridge Pedal with this three-mile loop crossing the Hawthorne and Steel bridges. Adults are welcome too as long as they are chaperoned by a child under 13 years of age. Although this is a free event, registration is required. Kids Pedal is the one Providence Bridge Pedal event with a registration limit so sign up early.
- Bridge Stride – The Providence Bridge Stride route for 2018 is five miles long and crosses the Fremont and Steel bridges.
