Portland's Wacky Winter Bike Party

 

Sunday, March 19, 2023

Check out all of the fun stuff...

Great Routes! The Perfect Something for Everyone.

Like it flat? The core route is 15-miles long, exploring the neighborhoods and bike ways of Portland's east-side (including the new Earl Blumenauer Bridge).

Consider adding an 8-mile, pancake-flat extension to Sellwood (new Sellwood Bridge, new Naito bike way) and/or a 17-mile loop past Cathedral Park and Kelly Point, where the Willamette meets the mighty Columbia. (University of Portland, Smith/Bybee Wetlands, Columbia River Slough Trail)

Choose from 15, 23, 32 or 40-miles.

Want a hillacious challenge? Warm up on your way to Sellwood where you begin climbing up the Riverview Cemetery and keep climbing up bike paths, up tiny roads, up 10-miles to Portland's highest point, Council Crest. Relish the speedy descent past giant historic homes before rejoining the flatlanders at the waterfront en route to the Half-time Party!

It's 31 miles on its own or you can add another 17 flat miles with the Northern Loop.

Complete details on the ROUTES page.

Benefiting the Community Cycling Center

The Community Cycling Center loves Portland and bikes. So they put the two loves together, creating a non-profit organization on a mission to broaden access to bicycling and its benefits.

They offer community programs that get more of our neighbors feeling the freedom of two wheels. They teach kids and adults how to ride safe, be their own bike mechanics, and get more confident behind the handlebars. And with a full-service bike shop selling new and used bikes, parts, and repairs, the wheels of this idea keep on turning.
