Portland is America’s premier biking city, where cycling is a way of life and not just a form of recreation or transportation. Now, with this comprehensive new guide, residents and visitors alike can connect with the region’s rich cycling culture.
Biking Portland ranges from the city’s urban core east to the base of Mount Hood, west to the Tualatin Valley and Coast Range foothills, down the Wilamette Valley and north across the Columbia River. Avid rider and bike commuter Owen Wozniak maps out city bike lanes, bucolic country roads, wide rail trails and green boulevards. Whether you’re looking for a morning workout or a weekend family outing, you can experience the Portland area’s bridges, wild rivers, expansive parks and deep forest from the saddle of your bike.
