Providence Bridge Pedal is “Perfectly Portland”

Providence Bridge Pedal is a community celebration of the Willamette River and bridges that knit Portland together. It is the only time each year that the upper decks of the Fremont and Marquam bridges are closed to motorized traffic. Enjoy both of these magnificent venues and the stunning views of downtown Portland, the Cascades and the Willamette River. There are ride options for cyclists of all skill levels.

Ride Options:

Bridge Pedal Marquam Express - This popular option is switching this year from the Fremont to the Marquam Bridge. Enjoy sunrise and a light breakfast on top of the Marquam Bridge with stunning views of downtown Portland, the Willamette River and the Cascades. Then bike on I-405 to the Fremont Bridge and onto the rest of the Providence Bridge Pedal route.

Bridge Pedal Main Ride - This new configuration crosses six downtown bridges with a thrilling ride on I-405 from the Marquam to the Fremont bridge. Riders may do multiple loops.

Bridge Pedal Family Ride - Our traditional family-friendly ride will cross six downtown bridges and will also include biking on a car-free section of I-405 through downtown Portland.

Kids Pedal - Even the youngest cyclists can enjoy being part of Providence Bridge Pedal with this three-mile loop crossing the Hawthorne and Steel bridges. Adults are welcome, too, as long as they are chaperoned by a child under 13 years of age. Although this is a free event, registration is required. Kids Pedal is the one Providence Bridge Pedal event with a registration limit, so sign up early.

Bridge Stride - For the first time participants in Providence Bridge Stride will cross both the Marquam and Fremont bridges on this 7½ mile walk.
