The Rose City will be the starting line of an epic multi-continental bike ride this weekend. The Portland to Portland bike ride stretches from Portland, OR to Portland Place in London, England.

Riders will bike from here to New York, then fly to Ireland before continuing their ride to London.

The ride begins Saturday at 7:30 a.m. near Northwest Kearney Street and 19th Avenue. In 76 days the team will travel 4,400 miles, and arrive in London on July 10.
