Even though we get to experience our beautiful City of Roses everyday, we always get a kick out of seeing our city through a visitor’s eyes, especially when that visitor is coming from another country. David Whitley with Travel Weekly out of the U.K. recently paid Portland a visit an wrote a great article we’d like to share with you!
David joined us on our Foodie Field Trip which visits Cup & Bar (a brick and mortal collaboration between Trailhead Roasters and Ranger Chocolates), Cartopia (featuring the 2016 Food Cart of the Year- Chicken & Guns), and Fifty Licks Ice Creamery (a uniquely tasty treat). Everything is included in the cost of the tour so all you have to do is ride though some of the historic neighborhoods of the Eastside and enjoy some of our culinary offerings!
The article speaks warmly not just of Cycle Portland, but also of Portland in general. “It’s not a place of big-ticket attractions, but it’s a fabulous city to delve into,” David writes. This is something we try to impart on our tours… that Portland doesn’t have an Eiffel Tower or a Taj Mahal, but what we do have are a 1001 unique things that when taken together do make Portland a world-class destination (and keeps us Weird!).
One of the things that David mentions in his article that caught our attention is that Delta Airlines will start offering seasonal direct flights from London to Portland beginning May of 2017! The addition of this flight will add to the small but growing number of international destinations to which one can directly fly from (or to) PDX. We are always thrilled to have world travelers join us on our tours, and by making the journey easier, we will hopefully be seeing more smiling adventurers in the future.

Thank you David Whitley and the good people at Travel Weekly!
Bon Appétit (or as we like to say Bike Appétit!)
