What You Can Expect

Downtown Portland Bike Tour

Bike through Downtown Portland

Starting in downtown Portland in either the morning or afternoon, follow your guide on an easy, mostly flat 9-mile (14-km) bike ride through the city. Travel along bike lanes and stop to admire the views of the skyline, the river and the city’s many bridges. While riding along the waterfront, pass the 19th-century brick and cast iron-fronted buildings of Old Town.

Continue into bustling Chinatown and on through the Pearl District, where turn-of-the-century warehouses have been turned into art galleries, shops and restaurants surrounded by soaring glass apartment buildings. You’ll make several stops in this interesting area to snap photos and learn some interesting history.

Pass Henry Weinhard’s 140-year-old brewery and a fortress-like armory that was turned into a theater. Continue south to downtown Portland, where you’ll pass classic food carts before entering the South Park Blocks.

Pedal through Oregon’s largest university, Portland State University, and then turn downhill to the waterfront and ride along the Willamette River. You'll end up back where you started.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

So great! My guide was friendly and informed. A leisurely pace was maintained throughout. She was really fantastic. I went alone and met some great travelers as well.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

My daughter and I spent our first morning in Portland cruising through downtown via bike. Our tour guide, Noah, tailored the information about the city around our interests (history, art, books) and did an excellent job of helping us get the "lay of the land" so we would be comfortable exploring during the remainder of our visit. He even provided a handy (and the by the end of the trip, well worn) map of the city with notes of where we had traveled and what we had expressed particular interest in exploring later.

The tour is a perfect way to start your visit to the city of Portland and it doesn't matter if you ride bikes frequently (my daughter) or haven't been on a bike in years (me). We had a wonderful time and we highly recommend this tour.
