Riding Your Set of Wheels Down Germantown Road in Portland, OR
Be it by longboard, road bike, or convertible, the trek down Germantown Road’s twisting turns is a sure fix for the adrenaline junkie. From Highway 26, go three miles north on 185th Ave and to turn right on Germantown Road. From the top, you’re immediately pulled downward past an idyllic wedding church and horse-filled farm pastures. Whether you’re touring Portland for the first time or just seeking a quick escape only ten miles from city-center cement, the rush of wind can clear away life’s worries. As your wheels arc the bulge of each turn down the seven-mile stretch of woodland road, you’ll go past the Leif Erickson Trailhead in Forest Park and end with a beautiful tree-framed view of the St. John’s Bridge over the Willamette River.
