Miracle in Portland: 8 bridges, 26 miles, zero coffee shops

Portland's Providence Bridge Pedal - not a car (or a coffee shop) in sight.

If, like me, you fall asleep thinking about next morning’s coffee, you’ll understand the creeping anxiety of waking up at 6 a.m. to join a mass bike ride through Portland – America’s capital city of coffee – only to discover the entire 26-mile route doesn’t coming within sniffing distance of java. Otherwise Sunday’s annual Province Bridge Pedal was excellent, particularly stopping to enjoy the views from the Fremont Bridge – closed to vehicle traffic just once a year for this event.

Emma sang rap music to help me through the last few miles of the Providence Bridge Pedal.
