Orp Attends 20th Annual Bridge Pedal

Yesterday, Orp attended the the 20th annual Portland Bridge Pedal. This events closes down the 11 bridges that cross the Willamette River to cars here in Portland and opens them to only cyclists and walkers. The event draws around 30,000 participants. The weather was perfect in the high 70’s-low 80s. This year, the highlight besides Orp, was Portland’s newest bridge, the Tillicum Crossing (yeah the name blows- one of  of our former colleagues had offered Willam-A-Span  which was much better).

We  had  a gazillion new Orp adoptions. Ok, not really a gazillion, but a whole lot of new Orps went out to riders. Below are some images of the new some of the real event’s Orps , riders and the new bridge. Thanks to  Portland , the sponsors and everyone who attended( did that sound corporate enough?}.
