Throughout the spring, summer and fall, we lead rides from the shop, every other Wednesday evening. Length, road surface and pace depend on who shows up. We try to do a different route every week, with some of our favorites being in Forest Park or up into the West Hills. Sometimes we just head up north to catch a sunset on the peninsula. Anyone is welcome, regardless of skill level.
We also do mountain bike rides one Sunday of each month, leaving from the shop. We welcome anybody on these rides, but please drop us an email beforehand. We try to provide transport and mechanical assistance to all rides, an RSVP is essential for us to plan adequately. We’ll often try to take people out to trails they normally wouldn’t get to ride, or may not know about. Some of our favorite rides from last season were: Sandy Ridge, Silver Star/Chinook, Falls Creek and Timberline/Pioneer Bridal Trail. All routes are pre-mapped and sent out in a monthly email, so you can look at it before you decide to come along!
If you’re interested in seeing some of our past routes, or just want some inspiration for your next ride, check out our Ride with GPS account. There is a bunch of stuff on there that we’ve put together in our explorations of Portland and the surrounding areas, and we’re happy to chat about routes with anybody. Drop by the shop or give us a call if you have any questions!
