De Ronde van Oeste Portlandia

Portlander's have always been known as a odd bunch. Cycling is part of the mainstream in this city. The Hawthorne bridge, which is about 100 feet from where I'm siting, has daily bike commutes of a jaw dropping 5,000 riders. The De Ronde van Oeste Portlandia is an event that's gaining a place on Portland's cycling calendar. Held for the first time a few years ago the event has grown in legend. The climbs are really steep and it takes its name from the Tour of Flanders in Belgium. If you're ever in Portland in the early part of April be sure to check out this great event.
