Wanna Join A Biker Gang?
Categories: .gif, Bikes, Family

Have you ever wanted to join a biker gang? Now is your chance. Well… if you live in Portland, OR then now is your chance. You don’t even need your own bike because we can borrow them from Hotel Monaco. Today around noon my niece Ayla and I set out on what ended up being a 5 hour bike ride. We did stop a few times but we really did have the bikes from about noon until around 5:00. Our first stop was a Powell’s Book Store to buy a copy of Gone Girl that I have been wanting to read. Ayla bought the second or third book in The Clan of the Cave Bear series. Oh and I also bought a copy of The Age of Miracles for her to read. I read it twice back in 2012 and I still recommend it to people.

After leaving the book store we headed down to the water front.

And we went a few miles south of downtown to the Portland Aerial Tram. To learn more about the tram you can click here.

Check out the view looking north toward downtown Portland while going up the tram.

And this is what it looks like from the top platform.

Pretty amazing view from the top. On a clear day you can see Mt Adams, Mt St Helens and Mt Hood.

Portland is such a biker friendly city.

You can ride all through downtown and feel very safe among the cars.

Of course I had to stop for a picture with the statue of Vera Katz.

    I can’t believe you haven’t read Gone Girl yet! A friend just loaned me her other book. Looking forward to hearing what you think of the book. I added Age of Miracles to my Goodreads shelf.

    Someone told me about it like last summer and I forgot. Then I read an article not to long ago that they are making a movie for it. When I went to buy the book I realized that I have already read her other book Sharp Objects which was pretty good.
