Portland: 10 Things to Do Time Magazine
A Portland bike tour company is offering “Portlandia”-themed bike rides.
Evan Ross, owner of Portland Bicycle Tours, said he has already organized two by request and is planning one for Friday night, ending at the showing of Episode 2 at the Mission Theater in Northwest Portland.

Evan Ross started Portland Bicycle Tours with just a few recycled bikes and an idea: to show people what makes Portland special in an environmentally friendly way—on bikes.

Ross already offers bike tours, rentals, bike-share, service and repair from a shop space in Old Town. Now he’s got a delivery service too.

We started the day by meeting up at the Portland Bicycle Tours & Rentals’ Shop in Chinatown (345 NW Everett St Portland, OR) at 8:30am. A few of us brought our own bikes while a couple others rented bikes. They have a large assortment of bikes ranging in sizes, single speeds and multi-speeds. We loaded up all the bikes and headed out West…
On the Portland Tour, Ross and his clients visited The Gilt Club in northwest, then rolled over to the Esplanade and then to a small, independent bookstore on SE Division. They also visited a local farm that provides produce for restaurants downtown and a food cart pod in southeast.
“I’m hoping that we’ll see a food cart scene in an upcoming episode or a Santacon reference,” Ross says, “I love this city.”
All three forums had a great turnout, and Saturday’s event received some extra help from local business owner Evan Ross. Ross is the owner of Portland Bicycle Tours, a local business that offers bike tours of the city and its surrounding areas, including Portland’s famous parks, buildings, and bridges.
