HOW LONG ARE THE TOURS?
DO YOU CANCEL TOURS IF IT RAINS?
As it is Portland, we love taking tours out rain or shine unless it is really nasty ( Oregon standards ) and provide “Portland Approved” rain pants and jackets. We also provide bikes that are equipped with full fenders. For more info refer to the policies on our Tour Page.

WHERE DO YOU RIDE?
Our Essential Portland tour covers four of Portland’s quadrants, utilizing the Vera Katz Eastbank esplanade, and routing from the Tillikum Crossing through PSU to the Pearl district and then towards our shop. Our Foodie Fieldtrip visits the Kerns neighborhood, following towards Ladds Addition and the inner SE neighborhoods before meandering back past the Tillikum crossing to the shop. Our Brews Cruise follows a variety of routes focused in semi-inner SE, and also North Portland (Guides pick based on group beer preferences for best fit).
