2022 Portland Tweed Ride: Saturday April 3

Urban Adventure League

Hello folks! Join us for a jaunty pedal through town on Sunday April 3rd, 2022!

Meet us in Grant Park in NE Portland at 11 AM.

  • If dry,meet near the Beverly Cleary Sculpture Garden (on the NE 33rd/Brazee side)
  • If wet,meet under the covered basketball court (on the NE 36th/Brazee side)

We depart promptly at noon for a ten mile ride. The route itself is a mystery, but will end downtown.

Bring a picnic, we’ll stop at the end. It’s also a good idea to bring tea, either pre-made in a thermos, or do it onsite with a stove.

We’ll have some updates as we get closer to the event.

As always, look your Tweedy Best!
