Pedal Portland: 25 Easy Rides for Exploring the City by Bike


Pedal Portland: 25 Easy Rides for Exploring the City by Bike Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Portland is bicycle nirvana. The city itself is beautiful, and the ever-expanding bike infrastructure makes for safe and pleasant riding. And it is a city full of bicyclists: 40 percent of residents bike recreationally and nearly 10 percent commute daily on bike. No wonder Bicycling magazine regularly names it one of the top cities to bike in America!

Pedal Portland celebrates the city's passion for pedaling in an accessible, fun, and family-friendly way. It features 25 easy rides that explore the most interesting parts of the city, from north to northwest to northeast, southwest to southeast, and the surrounding areas, like Beaverton and Vancouver. Each ride is accessible to anyone with a bike--including kids. The rides range from eight to twelve miles and many can be shortened by taking advantage of the city's bike-friendly public transportation. Each route features a scavenger hunt that highlights the quirky and interesting sites along the way and includes tips on where to eat, drink, and stop to appreciate the view.

Pedal Portland is the perfect way to experience the city!

About the Author

Todd Roll has been riding bicycles since learning to ride on a logging road in Cottage Grove, Oregon on his first hand-me-down Schwinn. Never liking to sit still and drive, he's dragged bikes to everywhere he's lived, including Eugene, Rome, San Diego, Seattle, Zurich, and now Portland. Todd has done bike tours all over the west coast, Canada, and Europe. Todd started Pedal Bike Tours to provide visitors and locals alike the experience of the most bike-friendly large city in America. When not telling visitors where to go, he and his wife Lota can be found riding around town as slowly as possible on their city bikes, exploring Portland's neighborhood cafes, bars, and restaurants.
