I’ve been doing the Dead Freeways Ride off and on since about since its inception in 2006. It’s been about three years since the last time I did one, and no better time than now to remind Portland folks of what kind of city we may have had if highway projects like the Mount Hood Freeway got built.
We’ll meet on Saturday March 9 at 11:00 AM. The meeting spot is Fehrenbacher Hof, 1225 SW 19th Av. We’ll be leaving at 11:30 AM so you have time to get some coffee and breakfast!
From there, we’ll ride about 10 miles eastward, passing by current freeways, freeways that were like Harbor Drive and freeways that did not come to pass, like the Mount Hood Freeway.
The ride is not a loop, but will end near transit. After the ride, I’ll be heading somewhere to have a drink and eat. We can talk more about Dead Freeways there!
