the sharrow!

A great way to explore the North Portland Peninsula is by bike. A convenient starting point is the Rose Quarter Transit Center if you're coming from outside the downtown core. Head north on N Interstate to the first greenspace overlooking the rail yards near Overlook Park. The only real hill en route is on this first stretch.
