Portland by bike
One of the Friday afternoon tours was a 14-mile bike tour around Portland, well known as a "biking city" (in some neighborhoods in the east side of the city, 20-25% of residents commute by bike). Bill Lang, an environmental historian at Portland State University, enlisted a former student, Scott Cohen, to lead the tour. For more photos from the tour, click here.
