Art By Bike- First Friday
Free community bike ride to Southeast Portland’s Monthly Art Walk
We had so much fun last month we’re doing it again! On April 2nd feed your soul and stretch your legs with Pedal Bike Tours and Art Scout Art Consultingon a free bike tour from Pedal’s shop (2249 N Williams) to First Friday, southeast Portland’s version of Last Thursday where galleries and other businesses throw a street-side party of art, food and community.
Unlike the other more well known (and crowded) art walks in Portland, First Friday is spread throughout several of Southeast Portland’s neighborhoods. This makes it difficult for walkers but perfect for bicycles!
Easy riding for everyone, bring spouses, significant others, grandparents, children, even portable pets! We’ll ride on quiet streets through lovely neighborhoods and pause for nourishing art and refreshments at three different art galleries.
