Now is the time! Get off your bum, put it on a bike seat and join the parade! Today we will pedal our last leg into Portland, OR with 2700 miles behind us and face paint ablazin’!

Snap a photo of your bike adventure today – however grand or brief – and you will go down in GMA (Giant Mega Adventure) history as a parade participant! The brave and daring Mira Novak, age 3, is the first to take the challenge!

Email your photo to

Happy riding!

    If it didn’t ruin my professional credibility, I would don face paint at the office in solidarity. Go riders, go!

    Phil’s final GMA quote of the day:

    “I’m afraid the dream is over!”

    I was riding my bike in spirit with you all – it’s pouring rain here
    (I am wearing my special face paint while cooking dinner though)

    So cool to meet you Joey on SE Woodstock during my bike commute home.
    I am more inspired after seeing the nifty blog. Sounds like a trip I would just love to take!
    Go to Saburo sushi if you get a chance… YUMMO! Heck, email me if you can too… I will try and meet up with you.

    amazing job guys! so glad you made it and it has been so wonderful to follow your adventure.

    suggestions for portland:
    voodoo donuts– bacon maple bar (yes.)
    potato champion– one of the food stalls on the east side of the river, i think its only open on weekends
    POWELLS BOOKS (leave a full day for this one, you may get lost)
    stumptown coffee
    rose garden at the top of the hill
    montage- macaroni-themed restaurant, if you ask to wrap up leftovers they make tin-foil art
    Pioneer Courthouse square- consistently considered one of the best public spaces in the country
    grilled cheese grill- i haven’t been but apparently they make ridiculous combinations involving grilled cheese sandwiches
    waterfront bike trail
