Portland By Cycle 

cover of Portand By Cycle brochure

Our guided bike rides offer information and a supportive setting for adults new to cycling, new to the area, or just getting back on the bike. The Portland By Cycle campaign encourages you to use a bike more often - for fun, exercise, shopping, or even commuting to work.  All activities are FREE and open to the public - no registration required (unless noted on the schedule).

Guided Bike Rides - Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, plus a few Saturdays

Guided bike rides show you the best of Portland's neighborhoods and how to ride safely and confidently.  All rides are loops - they start and end the same spot. Most rides meet at 5:45, leave at 6:00, and last til about 8:00 p.m., covering between 6 and 11 miles round-trip.

Classes to get you going - by bike (hosted by Go Lloyd)

Learn Cycling Essentials, Shop by Bike, and Bike Maintenance Basics in a relaxed setting and feel confident about using your bike for everyday trips.
