Mark your calendar now for the 2015 Providence Bridge Pedal Health and Wellness Expo. This year’s event will be held at the east end of the new Tilikum Crossing bridge adjacent to OMSI. The expo will be the only place to pick up your ride or walk packet before Sunday morning’s Providence Bridge Pedal. Be sure to stop by on Saturday if you want to avoid the check-in crowd on Sunday morning.
In addition to picking up your packet at the expo, you can visit with dozens of health and wellness providers. You can also enter contests for prizes, take pictures of Tilikum Crossing, and learn more about great events that take place all year long.
This fun event is open to everyone from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 8, and from noon to 5 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 9.
Also taking place from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m. on Sunday will be the People’s Preview of Tilikum Crossing, hosted by Providence, TriMet and the City of Portland. In what is essentially an open house for the new bridge, this is a chance for all community members to walk or bike across Tilikum Crossing before it officially opens in September. This event is separate from Providence Bridge Pedal. No registration is necessary, and no fees will be charged.
