This is a great way to get your bearings in Portland as well as a good grounding in local history and current issues. We had two couples along with our guide Guthrie. Bikes easy to ride, Portland is set up for cycling and the ride doesnt have any major climbs so can be done by all. Highly recommended
This is a really great way to explore the city and I would highly recommend it.
Our guide Alex was helpful and knowledge - making the experience both informative and fun. The bikes are good quality and the city is very cycle friendly. Part of the tour is on a floating cycleway along the side of he Columbia River. There are some spectacular bridges, pleasant parks and walkways, as well as different commercial and cultural quarters. Be ready for the changeable weather - they say in Portland you can see all 4 seasons in an afternoon and that was certainly true when I was there.
You can also extend your exploration by hanging onto the bike for an extra few hours for 10 which is really great if, like me, you want to go back and explore theBrewery Quarter first hand.
A very pleasant ride with a nice guide but focused on the river and bridges and not the other city highlights such as the food trucks, Powell's book and some good breweries. You'll get advice on those after the ride but won't see them on the way.
