Adaptive BIKETOWN is now live to provide
bicycles for persons with disabilities

Portland’s Adaptive BIKETOWN is now in operation to provide a bike rental service for people with varying abilities. Hand cycles, foot-powered trikes, multi-person bikes, and more are available at BIKETOWN’s bike shop partner Kerr Bikes, 1945 SE Water Ave., Building B (near OMSI, on the Eastbank Esplanade). Adaptive BIKETOWN is an extension of Portland’s bike share system.

To ride Adaptive BIKETOWN, there are three steps: make a reservation at, get fitted, and bike! Services included with a bike rental are:

  • Fitting for the available adaptive bikes
  • Bike Helmet (included with bike rental)
  • Mobility device storage during rental time
  • Crate storage of service animal during rental time period

For further information about renting a bike, hours of operation, pricing and making reservations, visit the Adaptive BIKETOWN website. Questions may also be directed to Steve Hoyt-McBeth, program manager. Call Steve at 503-823-7191 or email
