Overview
It's all about the bike ride! We like to spend more time riding in small groups, but always stopping to smell the roses. Start in the inner Eastside neighborhoods, where we will safely fit you for a bike and helmet, ready for a sweet 9-11 mile ride through a pretty residential neighborhood, to our favorite rose garden, into an art-heavy industrial district, across the sexy Tilikum Bridge, and onto Portland's waterfront. From there, it's a visit to Old Town, and tell the story of Voodoo, before we head back over another bridge back to our shop! You'll visit a total of 5 of the city's quadrants, ride over two bridges, and along the Willamette River. We'll visit almost-secret beaches, read poetry written in sidewalks and rocks, see public art of every shape, color and texture. And have you tried some of the city's best doughnuts? Learn our favorites! All along the way, we'll tell the stories of the city we love. Bikes, helmets and water provided. Please wear masks for bike sizing.

Sarah and Edwin were amazing. The ride was the prefect length, peppered with interesting facts about art, poetry, culture, bridges, roses, etc. Incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and they have the cutest dog too.

Did a tour in the rain and had a great time! I brought my own rain gear and was prepared to be drenched, but I acknowledge it's not for everyone. Never felt unsafe due to wet roads, city traffic, or social distancing. Crosswinds on the uphill part of Tikilum Crossing were

This was such a great way to see the city of Portland! The view from the top of one of the bridges was astounding, and it was great to bike around the city, it really gives you a different feel than driving and walking. Sarah, our guide, was so knowledgeable about the city, and
