Big bike tour of cities south

We just can't seem to get away from this guy! ;)

Sean joined us for yet another adventure this week - this time a bike ride.

Looking for a good bike route, Brad and I discovered this City of Portland site that lists all kinds of great rides - with maps and very detailed turn-by-turn directions. We picked this one.
We met at 7 a.m. Sunday at Sean's Sellwood house, which happened to be just a couple blocks off the course. We hopped on and headed south to Milwaukie, Oak Grove, Gladstone, Oregon City, West Linn, Lake Oswego and up Terwilliger Boulevard to downtown Portland.

We crested Terwilliger and took a little break at The Chart House to soak in the view:
Then all the way back to the river:
We completed the loop with a jaunt on the Springwater Corridor and right back to Sean's house. Then some serious refueling at Mike's Drive-In:
Just over 30.5 miles nice and early, few cars and lots of clouds to keep us cool!

And I'm very impressed by the routes from the City of Portland - great directions! I'll be using those again :)

Ohhh... I almost forgot. We kicked off the weekend with a bike ride, too:
Brad had ridden to work in Wilsonville, and I rode over at the end of the day to meet for Jamba. Free coupons from a race! :) Ended up being 22 miles.
