This is an opportunity to spend a pleasant summery Sunday morning and afternoon (10am to 3pm) winding your way on bike or foot through the mostly residential, car free, streets of North Portland. The routes take you from one park to the next, where you can check out the vendors and demonstrations, or just sit down and relax. For this week’s event, the parks include Peninsula, Arbor Lodge, Kenton, Trenton, and the Willamette Bluff. [more]
