Facing a shortage of police officers, the City of Portland has adopted a policy impacting all special events. It limits the number of police officers that can be used to support special events. The traditional Bridge Pedal route required about 75 officers.The new policy puts a limit of 33 officers for any event. When it became apparent the city was unwilling to consider alternative staffing options, there was no option but to change the route. The most significant adjustment was dropping the St. Johns Bridge from the ride.
