Bike ride

We will do a nice evening ride from Valley River Center along the Willamette River Trail. Meet in the back parking lot near the footbridge at 6pm. We will leave the meeting spot at 6:10. Plan to ride for about an hour. Rain or shine. See you there!

    Same question about what bridge and psrking lot. How do you get there. Is it behind Valkey River Inn/Macy's?

      From the highway intersection to the mall, turn left and head towards Valley River Inn, passing Red Lobster and World Market. Stay on this road all the way around the mall. The bike path goes between the mall's parking lot and the river. Just as the write up and my comment before have stated. The path follows the river, so look for the path along it. Follow this road as it takes you back behind the mall, also as I had stated. It will come to spot that is straight out from the old Gottshalk's, and the new Crossfit building, that used to be a tire store. I can stand on that footbridge and see the mall and the movie theater. Here is a picture taken from the footbridge facing the old Gottshalk's at the mall. http://www.meetup.com...­. I honestly hope this helps.

    Cory, to help let people know where everything is, do you mind if I add reference pictures to your write up? I do the same bike ride on Tuesdays, and have decided to take pictures to help people find the footbridge.

      If you know the spot, there is only one bridge there. The next footbridge to cross the river isn't until Alton Baker Park.
