Bike Beginners: We have the rides for you


Smiling people on bikesNo matter how much fun we had biking as kids, some of us aren't ready to just jump on a bike and bike to work. PBOT's Portland By Cycle program is here to re-open the gate to fun biking while increasing your skills and confidence for riding in the city.

Every Tuesday and Wednesday night at 6pm, Portland By Cycle offers a different summer ride to increase your urban cycling chops while exposing you to another great aspect of Stumptown.

Tonight's ride is a great example:

Cartlandia RideLogo for Cartlandia food cart pod

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Meet at Clinton Park, SE Woodward and 57th

Portland's carts are a citywide phenomena. Come along on this slow paced ride to to Portland's only food cart pod along the car-free Springwater Trail. Bring money if you're hungry.

Next week's Tuesday and Wednesday rides explore the stormwater gardens and swales that have helped make Portland a national leader in addressing urban stream and river pollution.

If biking in traffic scares the bejezus out of you, then mark Tuesday, July 31st on your calendar.  More than fifty percent of The Ride the Waterfront ride takes place on the picturesque Springwater Corridor Trail.

All rides are free and begin at 6:00 p.m. Helmets are required. The schedule of summer rides continues through the end of August.
