Sunday Parkways North Portland

Last Sunday I braved the almost 100° temperatures to ride in the North Portland Sunday Parkways event, a nine-mile car free road course for walkers, cyclists, rollerbladers, and more.  The city of Portland puts these on about once a month during the summer all over the city and it is a great opportunity to enjoy Portland with lots of other people having some fun and exercise.

Along the course there were some open houses, so of course I had to check it out. This house was a smaller home built in the 1920’s on sale for around $400,000

A garage sale with miscellaneous junk that was a bit overpriced

There were four parks to visit, and each park had booths and vendors, some offering up some freebies like these strawberries and blueberries from Whole Foods Market


Open house number three, this one was amazing inside and I did not even look at the price.

I finished my bike ride and under two and a half hours, then I stopped by the Good in the Hood Festival

I cannot imagine how hot it would be to be barbecuing this meat while it is 100 degrees outside
