May is Bike Month here at Chinook Book and we're going to use the rest of this month to post about our favorite bike rides/trails around Portland. Last time the trail was way up in North Portland by the airport, so this next one is much closer to central PDX.
WHAT IS IT?
If you find yourself biking from SE Division to SE Hawthorne, make your way over to Ladd’s Addition. While the neighborhood is nearly impossible to navigate without perfect a perfect cartographical memory, beautiful and quiet streets provide a perfect place to get lost. Swing by Teote Areperia at the lower edge of the neighborhood to pick up some of the best Venezuelan food in the city. If it’s not raining, you can even take your arepas back to Ladd’s Addition. A roundabout in the center offers a beautiful shady park for a picnic. Don’t forget to pack up everything you brought into the park so others can continue to enjoy the space!
WHAT MAKES IT GREAT
Beautiful quiet streets are just complicated enough to get lost. A roundabout in the center offers a beautiful shady park for a quick rest.
