Riders To The Stars (Portland to WA)
December 10, 2016 at 4:00 pm
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

Meet at the bike racks next to the store entrance.
This ride goes up to Vancouver to pass by the cluster of over-the-top holiday light houses on the North side of the I-205 bridge. The highlight of the ride is RGB Stars (http://rgbstars.com/) a street with the houses covered in thousands of stars containing red, green, and blue LEDs that can glow any color by varying the intensity of those independently-controlled light elements. This highly-choreographed music/light show requires a half dozen computers to run everything.
Holiday decorated bikes are welcome. We’ll get noticed riding on the bike path that goes along the middle of the I-205 Bridge!
