What You Can Expect

Downtown Portland Bike Tour

Bike through Downtown Portland

In the morning or afternoon, meet your local guide in downtown Portland and take off on an easy 9-mile (14-km) bike ride through the city’s bustling and historic west side. First take the bike-lane route along Tom McCall Waterfront Park, a lively venue any time of year as the site of the city’s biggest festivals and the Portland Saturday Market. Admire the Willamette River, the city’s many bridges and the striking mountainous backdrop. 
View the classic 19th-century brick and cast iron buildings of Old Town before leaving the riverside and passing through Chinatown and the trendy Pearl District, where sparkling new high-rises juxtapose converted turn-of-the-century warehouses. Pedal past art galleries, shops and restaurants, and learn some of the area’s fascinating history from your guide. 
As you continue toward the South Park Blocks, pass Henry Weinhard’s 140-year-old brewery,  a pod of eclectic food carts and Portland Center Stage, a fortress-like armory turned theater. The final leg of the tour takes you through Portland State University’s lovely urban campus and back to your starting point on the river.

Jesse was our guide today and he was great! We started at the bike shop to get our bikes and fittings and went on to bike through various areas/districts of the town. I've been on plenty bike tours before and this one doesn't really require a certain level of fitness as there were frequent stops to rest and listen to history and story telling. I personally enjoy bike tours so I can cover a lot of ground per se while getting the interesting city/history insight along the way. And for a 3 hour tour I learned and saw plenty. Usually I take bike tours on the start of my trip to help me get an idea of where I want to focus the rest of the trip on but was not able to schedule it in till the day of leaving this time around. And with all the walking and exploring we already did prior to this bike tour, still saw and learned new things : There is a 15 minute portion where we can break up and explore a part of town for donuts, coffee, etc before moving onto the next spot. If you are looking for a work out and/or not so interested in learning about the city/history then you might want to look at another tour since you might feel the pace a tad slow.

Justin and Gannon were terrific guides! They kept the tour interesting, well-paced, safe, and fun! The bikes were perfect for urban riding having wide tires, foam-padded seats and easy gears. Highly recommend this tour!!!

Great way to go around the city and exercise at the same time, and on a bike you can cover a bigger area. We did go everywhere on both sides of the river.

We loved the tour. It was a great way to be introduced to Portland. We were surprised when we return via the opposite side of the river. We received lots of information and had a fun time.

The tour was perfect!!! We were hesitant booking at first because we had never done one before but it was one of the best things we did on our trip to Portland. Our guide Evan made it even better... So knowledgeable about the area! So much fun, highly recommended!
