Routes & Rides
Just visiting Portland, tired of your same old route, or hoping to meet fellow cyclists, scroll down to learn more about what the Portland cycling community has to offer. Rides require, at a minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case you stop, and your biggest smile! It's also a good idea to confirm dates, times, and specific requirements before joining any of the group rides. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
