Where to Bike Portland Rides Around

Anne Lee, our Deputy Director, just launched her first book, Where to Bike Portland. The book is aimed at the recreational cyclist, and offers rides from 3 miles to 70 miles. There really is something for everyone. Anne is leading two rides that are featured in her book and you are invited to join her. Here’s more information on the rides from the author herself:

I hope you are as excited about riding your bike around this beautiful area as I am. If you would like to join me, please print this list of rides and join me at the starting location on the day and time indicated.

A few things to note…

  • Your bike should be in good working order. If you are uncertain as to its condition, please bring it to your favorite bike shop for a check up before attempting a group ride.
  • These rides will be no-drop group rides. What does that mean? It means that we will be traveling together as much as possible and will be waiting for each other as we ride through intersections.
  • Our travel speed will probably not exceed 12-14 mph even on the longer rides.
  • Please bring: basic equipment to fix your own flat tires, as we will not have any mechanic support on the ride, helmet, lights, safety vest, water bottle, snacks, money, TriMet tickets, just in case.
  • Each ride will be preceded by a short review of the road rules and bicycling etiquette that we will be practicing on the ride.
    Rides will take place rain or shine!

There is no need to pre-register for these rides, but if you have questions, please call Anne Lee at 503-288-8864. Hope to see you at one of the rides!
